Death Defying Sheep

Apparently the Scots reintroduced the native huge Sea Eagle to the Isle of Skye, the same species as is found in Norway apparently, however they now occasionally grab a lamp of two each season – if this occurs, apparently the farmers are re-reimbursed for the cost of the lamb ?!!

They are worried about a few lambs missing from an endangered eagle, but not concerned with them falling off cliffs ? 🙂 and they gotta fall off these cliffs, this sheep and its lamb were right on the edge, basically if that lamb stepped backwards it was off the cliff and seal food – this was the closest (to the edge not the sheep 🙂 ) that i was game to get to 🙂

All those little white specks up there on the da grass… they are sheep too – thats Neist Lighthouse over there too btw 🙂 very cool one at that.

  1. These are mountain sheep who have an uncanny ability to climb up and then down these incredible peaks. I have seen the same in Cumbria in The Lakes District. These are a different species from the Cumbrian Herdwicks, which have dark wool while these sheep are snowy white. But they share similar abilities to survive in harsh habitats that seem to incredible to be true. I am beyond thrilled to be seeing Scotland through your eyes. It is a place that, once seen, stays with you forever.

    There was a mix of sheep in scotland, some all white and some with the skinny black legs too, they all had mountain goat genes included though 🙂 They provided plenty of distractions for the kids as we drove around too 🙂
