Highland Cows at Glenmoriston, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings at Kyle of Lochalsh at 10.00 am and drove N.E. for about 10 minutes to our first stop at Eilean Donan Castle. This castle was actually rebuilt from a ruin during the early 20th century by the Chief of Clan Macrae and is now a very popular visitor attraction and also used for filming.

Next, we continued north through stunning Highland scenery to our next stop at Redburn Cafe near Glenmoriston. Here we were able to feed the photogenic Highland Cows, see sheep, pet rabbits and rare siskin birds.
