Soay Sheep

 These very cute Soay sheep have turned up on our farm out of the blue! They don't have any tags in so it's not possiblle to trace them. We have reported them to the police but no one has reported any missing so looks like they're here to stay.

walling

We continue to have our dry stone walls rebuilt. Nigel, our walling man has completed 150m in 2013 for us and will continue to do a similar amount this coming year.
