Description
 
Over the centuries Scotland has produced a variety of agricultural implements which reflect both the subsistence farming of the crofting communities and the prosperity of the larger lowland farms.

Until the eighteenth century implements were often rudimentary, particularly in crofting areas where most tasks were carried out by manpower. The movement towards improvement came in the eighteenth century and continued in the early nineteenth century and manufacturers produced implement variations to serve regional needs.In this book each implement is treated chronologically within a seasonal framework.
