Furmiston, Carsphairn in South West Scotland is home to the Heatherley Fold of Highland Cattle and Pedigree Beef Shorthorns.
- This was a large Fold of Pedigree Highland Cattle reared commercially on rough Scottish moorland. One hundred and twenty pedigree cows, plus young stock, have been run on the hill, with a percentage crossed with the shorthorn bull. Our Highland Cattle numbers have been cut back and now we have established a small herd of Beef Shorthorns.
- This hardy Fold of Highlanders, and now Shorthorns has been established to suit the type of land and the lack of buildings on the farm, i.e. the cattle are all outwintered and reared naturally.
