Australia has kangaroos, China has pandas, and Scotland is known for its … cows? Hairy, red-haired, pink-tongued Highland cows, to be exact.
They are charming animals that you will see in the fields and pastures of the Hebrides and even along the Scottish borders.
But if you’re not in the UK right now, the pandemic means you probably won’t be visiting these sweet, heavy animals for at least a while.
However, don’t worry. The Visit Scotland team is helping travelers who are stuck at home with a ‘coo chamber’, so everyone can get their fix of the sweetness of Highland farm animals.
Take a look at Visit Scotland’s social media and you’ll see cows from Cooking sheep and coos at Dumfries and Galloway, and from Swanston Farm in Edinburgh.
The cows were filmed in November and clips will be released throughout the year.
“We want people to continue enjoying our country and what makes us unique through virtual experiences that you can still enjoy from the comfort of your home,” says the Visit Scotland tourism board, “From the use of a tree as a scratching post, making its lows heard, and having a good nosy on camera, the Coo Cam provides an all-access perspective to farm life. “
