A time­less High­land scene

The Field - - #Thefield -

When the Deputy Edi­tor and her hus­band, Sam, took their sum­mer hol­i­day in Scot­land, fish­ing and stalking were on the cards. This pic­ture of Sam’s stag be­ing brought off the hill re­ceived more than 1,000 In­sta­gram likes. It shows gar­ron pony Lit­tle Jock and Ben bring­ing down the beast at Gaick, in Perthshire, af­ter a suc­cess­ful stalk. The pony track up to the top of the hill, known col­lo­qui­ally as the 27 Bends, was put in dur­ing the 19th cen­tury and was main­tained by a team of

men em­ployed for the pur­pose.
