Abstract

The Scottish Gàidhealtachd (the Highlands and Islands/Gaelic speaking Highlands and Hebrides) is sometimes regarded as an area which had little trade or contact with the wider world in the seventeenth century. This short note explores some of the evidence for the circulation of foreign coinage in the area in the seventeenth century.
