There is no exact number for any dates of Scottish immigration, but what is usually considered the largest is Scottish migration to U. S. between 1717 to 1770 into Philadelphia.


Answer by  Zoso (869)

The largest migration of Scots came early, between about 1720 and 1770, and they mainly settled into the Appalachian Mountains from Pennsylvania south into Kentucky, many staying around Philadelphia.

Either 1717-1770 into Pennsylvania (about 250,000 people), or 1881-1890 into New England and the Midwest (about 140,000 people). Remember though that the US/Canada border was loose at this time, so many Scots immigrated into Canada and then settled in the U. S. and vice versa.
