0 Scotland Trip; Highland Cattle!

One thing I was most excited about on our Scotland Trip was seeing all the Highland cattle.  We didn't see any for several days, then only seemed to spot them far away or at dusk when the lighting was poor.  Finally near Pluscarden Abbey I got some great shots from a very cooperative fold, and we then saw more as we drove around, especially in Argyll.  Things I learned:  they're really quite small and they're rather timid.  But they're SUPER EXTRA ULTRA ADORABLE!!!

Near Loch Ness.

Not Highland Cattle, but cute all the same!

 The fold near Pluscarden.

Behind Glenfiddich Distillery.

They come in black (the original color), white, tan, and shades of orange/red.   This fold is on the Isle of Skye.

The bull may be bigger than the rest, but he's still small!

Fold on Isle of Mull.  Soggy and wet.

Now I just have to plot how to adopt one... or five!!
