Heilan Coo

The Heilan Coo is a Scottish breed of cattle. They are descended from a breed which was brought to Britain by Neolithic farmers.

Thanks to their double layer of hair, they are very hardy creatures who can tolerate winds, rain and snowy conditions.

Highland cattle are a source of very high quality meat which is low in cholesterol.

Although now native to Scotland, the breed can be found throughout Britain as well as in Canada, Australia, Denmark and Finland. I found this friendly one in the Peak District National Park of Derbyshire.
