Itchy coo park. Wild Highland Coos.

Do you think this is what George Lucas saw when he imagined some of the  creatures he created for Star Wars? These little beauties are a  cross between a wooly mammoth and a bear and they are all around us. Whilst on the Island of Mull the number of these gentle hairy galoots made it impossible to get anywhere fast.  I kept stopping the car for a good stare.  

The Hairy Galoot just stared as we watched his gigantic friend.

Well that and the sheep and lambs lounging casually in the middle of the one track roads. A staunch meat eater having witnessed these lovely beasties I have to confess vegetarianism is now a realistic possibility.
