Down the road from the castle, we stopped by the side of the road to see some hairy coos.
(SCOTLAND FACT: Coo is the Gaelic word for cow, so Highland Cattle are always referred to as hairy coos.)
(SCOTLAND FACT: A bunch of hairy coos is called a fold instead of a herd. Don’t know why, that’s just the way it is.)
I wanted one of these coos to look at me, so I would have a good look at its hair hanging down in front of its eyes, but they were all too busy eating. Truly, look up hairy coos on the web – they are very cute.
We then followed a path through the woods which crossed the River Moriston and a River Moriston waterfall and across the Invermoriston Bridge which was built by a very well-known bridge builder named Thomas Telford, who took eight years to build it – and then a flood made it impassable three years later. But it was a pretty walk.
