The Belted Galloway breed is a feature of this part of Scotland. Not as common perhaps as other breeds in the area, but very attractive, and worth a trip out to search for them locally. In these vegetarian and vegan days it will not be popular with some readers to say that the beef they produce is marvellous, and a beef casserole made with their meat is wonderful. Tasty, but not tough at all. There is a cottage nearby (no connection) for those interested.

Where is it ?
A reminder from John Ruskin, . . .
“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest, who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.”
From “Unto this Last”, 1860.
