Not All at Sea
These cattle are certainly not all at sea when it comes to swimming. to Stenscholl off Staffin in Skye. Iain MacDonald (80) is the last crofter to swim his cattle to their winter grazing and this has led to much recent media coverage. The BBC has a gallery of photographs and the West Highland Free Press an in-depth interview with the crofter-cum-coach. When he was younger he accompanied his herd in the water. Now he goes with them on it!
