  Highland Land League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As the Highland Land League it was consciously modelled on the Irish Land League.
The Land League was associated also however with direct-action protest tactics and the use of these tactics was to reappear in the early 20th century.
Some resources were put into development of the communications infrastructure of the Highlands and Islands (roads, railways, and harbours) and, in the early years of the 20th century the Congested Districts Board was able to push through the establishement of new crofting townnships on Skye and in the Strathnaver area of Sutherland.

 Highland Football League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It has also had to contend with overexposure of large teams in the area such as Aberdeen F.C. and Inverness Caledonian Thistle, as well as the Old Firm to the South, and to an extent, English football.
The league has been somewhat weakened in recent years by the departure of many former members who have subsequently joined the SFL.
Until then the HFL operated with 18 clubs, which was reduced by the departure of the three mentioned clubs who were replaced by the election of Wick Academy F.C. from the North Caledonian Football League to create a league of 16 clubs.
