Windswept the stag at Loch Ossian Youth Hostel
Windswept the stag at Loch Ossian Youth Hostel
This tame red deer stag called Windswept used to hang around the youth hostel at Loch Ossian where he was quite a celebrity with visitors and hill walkers. The warden had fed the deer over a period of time until it became tame and it would often go inside the hostel for a handout. I was here today with a group from the Scottish Borders Hill Walking Club and the following is an extract from the report of the club walk in the local newspaper:-

‘Some members decided to visit the youth hostel at Loch Ossian and we had the pleasure of meeting one of the natives, a stag who had a pronounced taste for cheese rolls’.
