This chapter is divided into two main parts. The first part comprises a theological and cultural analysis of the Highland evangelical movement. The second part enquires into the development of Highland ‘peoplehood’ and the cultural awakening of pro-Gaelic sentiment. The social and economic aspects of these processes are examined and there are case studies of the contribution of two prominent Highlanders, the journalist John Murdoch and the leading Free Church minister, John Kennedy.

Keywords:   Highland evangelical movement, pro-Gaelic sentiments, John Murdoch, John Kennedy, peoplehood
