This evening I am posting some images from a recent tour covering South Lanarkshire and Ayrshire and mainly centering on the Avon Water valley between Strathaven and Darvel/Newmilns.

This area is traditional mixed farming country.

Here are some sheep; these animals outnumber people in Scotland by a ratio of 1.5:1


Do not tangle wuth this gentleman!

Views and cattle

With the right weather its surprising how pleasant the scenery in this part of Scotland is. Our American guests could not understand why their ancestors left the place! Funny old world.
