Highland Pastures

The Highlands refer to the part of Scotland that is north-west of the geological Highland Boundary Fault, which runs across from Helensburgh to Stonehaven. Pastures are parts of the land that are used for grazing. Scotland has a truly unique breed of cattle that can be identified by its long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver, or dun, this type of cattle is typically raised for its meat. Originally small farms would keep a highland cow as a house cow to produce milk and for its meat. Also in this postcard can see a thatched cottage. Thatched roof was created with dry vegetation such as straw, water reed, sedge, rushes or heather.
