Mooing with the Highland Cows

Pollok Country Park

One of the highlights of visiting Scotland is the chance to get your picture taken with one of those loveable Highland Cows. Being ginger myself I can understand the attraction. However most students don't realise that travelling up north is not the only way to see these wonderful creatures. 

Our walk this week saw forty students from across the universities in Glasgow head to the South West of Glasgow to Pollok Country Park. As Glasgow's largest park and the largest urban park in Europe there is a lot to see here. However it's the herd of around 100 Highland Cows that draw the crowds.

We were in luck. Not only were the cows particularly friendly but their wee babies were out in force too.
