A close up of a plaque on the Land League Monument at Gartymore, near Helmsdale. The monument was dedicated to the men and women who strove to reform the property rights of crofters. The plaque provides a description of the struggle to achieve land reform and some of the principal individuals involved.

A crofting community in Sutherland, Gartymore was at the centre of the Crofters War, which swept the Highlands in the late nineteenth century. A number of individuals from the community were instrumental in establishing the inaugural branch of the Land League Movement and forcing through the Crofting Act of 1886.
