dc.description.abstract This paper examines the Little Ice Age in the Scottish Highlands and Islands and uses documentary evidence to show its impact on the farm economy. It has three sections. The first examines how Highland climate may have changed during the Little Ice Age. and notes that increased storminess was probably as much a factor as lower annual mean temperatures. The second takes the most severe phase of the Little Ice Age. the Maunder Mininium, 1645-1715, and uses rests or eases of rent to show how it stressed the farm economy. The third examines evidence for the abandonment of land during the Maunder Minimum. As well as arguing, that we need to see abandonment in its social as well as physical setting. it highlights the role played by the temporary abandonment of land and suggests that Such abandonment along the western seaboard probably indicates the impact of increased storminess. en
