Photographer's Note

Via via VIII: From our latest holidays in the UK:

E: We have moved from Roybridge to a camping by the Loch Greshornish on the Island of Skye. Our first day trip brings us to the west of the island, near Roskhill.

Stopped along the A 863 to have a closer look on the specific cattle of Scotland, the Highland cattle.

Wikipedia:
(Scottish Gaelic: Ḅ Ghàidhealach) (Scots: kyloe) are a Scottish breed of cattle with long horns and long wavy coats which are coloured black, brindled, red, yellow or dun.The breed was developed in the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland. Breeding stock has been exported to the rest of the world, especially Australia and North America, since the early 20th Century. The breed was developed from two sets of stock, one originally black, and the other reddish.
Highlands are known as a hardy breed due to the rugged nature of their native Scottish Highlands, with high rainfall and very strong winds.
