Haircut time at Roskhill
Haircut time at Roskhill
One done, about thirty to do... (I tried to count them, but I fell asleep..) Watched by his children, a shepherd is shearing the sheep which are spending their summer on the grazing land in front of my home. The animals have been gathered into a temporary pen by the sheepdog which is lying in the grass intently watching the shearing activity. Beyond is Pool Roag, Road Island and Loch Bracadale. The cliffs end at Idrigill Point in NG2536.
