Hairy Coo Safari

GUIDED BY AN ENTERTAINER, AND KNOWLEDGEABLE RANGER

Walk down to the farm, and meet these wonderful Hairy Heilan Coo’s!
Highland Cow Tour at Rothiemurchus near Aviemore

Description

Guided by an entertaining, and knowledgeable Ranger, walk down to the farm, and meet these wonderful Hairy Heilan Coo’s. The Ranger calls the Highland cattle who come right up to the fence to be fed.  The Rangers will tell you the history of the {extremely) photogenic, traditional cattle of the Highlands with their huge horns and hairy coat, which in Rothiemurchus still live outside all year round.  They are still an important part of farm life here as they are the most delicious tender (and most expensive ) beef produced in the U.K.   The Rangers can explain how traditionally the young ‘stirks’, were ‘driven’ across the mountains to ‘low ground’ and the markets, until the arrival of the railway after which they were sent South by train to supply the best restaurants in London such as Simpson’s in the Strand.
