This evening, I am presenting an image of Hamish, a Highland cow (actually a bull!) who is probably one of the most photographed animals in Scotland. He resides in his own pen at a tourist attraction near Callander in Perthshire.

He is about 15 years old and appears very friendly and placid. His present ‘pampered’ lifestye means he will probably live until age about 40 years.
