Tiree: Seeing Double

Farming and Crofting are a way of life for many on Tiree. The island is not simply a playground with stunning beaches and Machair – it is a place where people work hard and for whom care for the land and their animals is vitally important.

After a leisurely lunch and the conversation that followed on, we were making our way home, when rounding a bend in the road we thought we were seeing double. Darkness was descending? Were our eyes playing a trick on us? No! There really was a cow with twins. In fact there was not just one cow, there were two cows and two sets of twins.

Supper is spelt contentment.
