I’m not sure where I took this picture of a curious Highland Cow peeking over the fence, I think it might have been in the Cairndow area, possibly on the track to the Fyne Ales brewery.

A beautiful sunny and warm June afternoon at the west coast of Islay. Several cattle and a few sheep have decided to take a rest on the machair on the dunes at Saligo. And while you can’t see it in the picture, Saligo Bay is just behind the dune.
