I was out on the moor yesterday with the sheep and seeing as it was a nice day, I took a couple of pictures.
My dad was out too and he went to look for a new site where we can machine cut peats.
I took some pictures of the heather.
This is one of the reasons sheep are sent out to the moor, or why they would have been in the past anyway. They get some minerals from the moor that they don’t get on the crofts, and the heather is also excellent at cleaning their feet. We’ve never had foot problems, despite never giving the sheep a foot-bath.
Here’s a patch of still-frozen heather.
I posted a panoramic picture of Gleann Dail already, but here is a normal one.
