Mooo! Hamish, the world famous Highland cow says hello to the Ness Bus tour

Hamish_NB_colourI recently boarded the Ness Bus tour from Edinburgh to Loch Ness and we made a pitstop near Callander to visit Scotland’s most famous Hairy Coo


If travelling up into Central Scotland you must visit Hamish, he is a Scottish institution and although he’s getting on a bit now, he still has all the majesty and beauty which made him so famous. Indeed, if you are looking at a postcard of a Highland Cow on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, chances are that cow is Hamish. He even has his own facebook page!


Visit him, and buy some food for him from the shop, at the Trossachs Wollen Mill in Kilmahog, just outside Callander.
