A Highland Coo's Guide to the Highlands & Islands

By Steven McKenzie

A Highland coo's guide to the Highlands and Islands is a light-hearted cartoon with some silly bovine-inspired puns.

Highland cattle are one of the iconic animals of the region, and popular with both residents and visitors.

With their floppy fringes and ginger coats they make the ideal subject for a cartoon about the Highlands and Islands.
