This morning, the heavy rain had eased. I went off to Pollock Park, south Glasgow to obtain some images of the small herd of Highland Cattle which are maintained there by the Council. These are magnificent, photogenic and generally docile, beasts which tend to thrive on the poor pasture found on the hills and mountains.
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.
