For ‘ghost of the wind’ who loves the cuddly cattle, here’s a close up for you. The intrepid photographer got in the field with them and was greeted by considerable curiosity. The other image is of Buchaille, beautiful even on this overcast day. For those that may be heading to Skye, he recommends “Creelers’ in Broadford for the seafood gumbo. He’s going to Staffin Beach today as the winds up and the surf’s fine!

I’m on a Skye binge these days and I blame Frank Heumann, on holiday on Skye right now, the lucky sod! We can forgive him because he keeps taking these heart breaking, beautiful images and shares them on Facebook. If you want to see all of his collection, click on the link provided. In the meantime, you are looking at the Trotternish Ridge and a very beautifully framed Quirang. Last but by no means least are the Highland Cows, first registered as a breed in 1884 and therefore, the oldest registered breed. Their thick, shaggy coat, so perfect for Highland Scottish weather, allows them to repel snow and rain. They are not known for being picky eaters and will graze on grass that other cattle passes by.
