A tribute to our favourite Highland Cow, Hamish!

Posted on the | Category: Blog


Scotland’s beloved Highland Cow, Hamish, has sadly passed away peacefully at the age of 22. Hamish was the oldest of his kind in Scotland and the second oldest in the world. He resided at The Trossachs Woollen Mill at Kilmahog, near Callander, where many of our customers will have gotten to meet him. He was loved by all and will be sadly missed by everyone at Timberbush Tours.

Further to the sad news about Hamish, we have received many photos from our customers with the world’s favourite highland cow. It's fantastic to see how much he was loved and these lovely photos really help keep the memory of this special highland cow alive. Enjoy a selection of the photos we received below!
