This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the historical connection between Scotland and the Caribbean in the later part of the eighteenth century. It suggests that support and patronage of their networks played an important role in Scots' transition from a Scotland in a state of flux to a Caribbean beset by enormous challenges. The groupings of the Scots were based on precisely the kind of social relations within kinships that had characterised Scottish society for generations. This chapter contends that the Scottish-Caribbean interaction throws into sharp relief the idea of the imperial relationship as a process of accommodation.
