Highland Cows at Swanston Farm

Swanston Farm is a working farm and we have our own herd of Highland Cows which live wild on 300 acres of our hill land above the farm.  Along with our breeding of Texel-cross sheep and our cluster of free range hens, the produce from our farm animals are used in our Brasserie when available, providing excellent quality beef, lamb and eggs.

Visitors to Swanston Farm are able to see our Highland Cows if they are prepared for a wee walk up the hill!  We recommend sturdy trainers or preferably walking boots, along with appropriate clothing for the weather conditions before venturing out up the slopes at the bases of Caerketton and Allermuir Hills of the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

You can read or download our booklet on where to find our Highland Cows here.  This also includes a map and a recommended walking route as well as some interesting facts about our herd.
