Historical Background and Maps

In 1766, Henry Home, Lord Kames, laird of the Blair Drummond estate undertook a massive agricultural reclamation project on the swamp lands on his estate known as the Drummond Moss.  He began to drain the Moss and prepare it for agricultural cultivation and human settlement.  In 1768 he began to settle families on the Moss.

 

After Henry’s death, his son, George Home-Drummond continued the project eventually cultivating all 1500 acres of the Moss.  By 1814, the population of the Moss was 764 and included a school.

 

The Moss was divided into eight distinct settlements, listed in the Table of Contents above.  To view maps of these settlements, please click on the links below.
