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 However, as a beef animal, the breed has largely been replaced by faster maturing alternatives.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.
This blog post covers a very rare calf born last year in Glasgow.
- I have been focused on devising a Scotland-Ireland tour for a visiting family during the summer period. An interesting challenge owing to the diversity of the group.
- Took a firm booking for a one day whisky tour based around Glasgow (two distilleries).
- Located burial place of ancestor of a Canadian guest coming over in the summer.
Overall, quite a productive day. Weather here this evening is very wet and windy but otherwise mild.
