Highland Cow, Scotland

Photogenic Highland Cow, Scotland

This evening I have decided to present a small portfolio of Highland Cattle images.

These animals traditionally inhabited the Scottish Highlands where they were admirably suited to the tough weather and poor grazing. However, as a beef animal, the breed has largely been replaced by faster maturing alternatives. The Highland breed is still popular in Scotland and around the world. On my tours I encounter  animals on a solo basis or in small herds close to major tourist attractions, e.g. castles and distilleries where their docile and photogenic natures make them popular with visitors.
