but given to fighting and plunder, and known
to their lowland neighbours only by repeated
forays. Under their chiefs, they remained inde-
pendent of the Scottish kings, though tamed by
Jas. V. (the Snowdon knight of Scott's ' Lady
of the Lake') and some of his predecessors. In
1645, most of the clans assisted Montrose in be-
half of Ch. I. ; they were reduced by Cromwell,
who planted garrisons at Inverness, Fort William,
etc. ; rose again at the revolution for Jas. II.,
and for his children, under Marr 1715, and
again 1745, when with Ch. Stuart at their head


they marched to Derby ; but in the mean time
the" country had been laid open by military roads
made by Gen. Wade 1737, and the power of the
chiefs was broken 1748 by the abolition of here-
ditary jurisdictions. Surface, about 13,500 sq. m.,
including Suthrld., Ross, Inverness., Argyll., parts
of Elgin, Banff., Perth., Stirling, Dumbrtn. ; pop.
about 305,000, much reduced since the last cen-
tury by emigration, and dispersed over sheep-
farms, or along the coast (and in the West. Islds.),
but still gaelic- speaking. The first coach went
through the highlands 1811 ; steamers now run
along the W. shores, and through the Caledonian
canal ; and the value of land, stock, etc. has
greatly increased (7 or 8 times in some cases) by
the making of good roads. The clans and their
badges were and are : Buchanan (S. highlands^
