The Hairy Coo Tour

The Hairy Coo Tour

Back in August, I realised that despite being Scottish – I had never seen a highland cow. Some people believe me, some people don’t but either way I couldn’t remember it! 

I decided to look up where was the closest place to go from Edinburgh to see the friendly giants and came across ‘The Hairy Coo Tour’. I don’t drive so decided going on a tour may be the answer! 

The Hairy Coo Tour do a number of tours around Scotland but I chose their ‘free tour’ which you tip what you think it’s worth at the end!  We met Andy the Guide and his very bright orange bus on the Royal mile in Edinburgh. Andy was great and when I say he was knowledgeable, I really mean it. How someone can know so much on Scotland – past, present and future – is beyond me. I literally forget everything when it comes to history, other than Wallace is a hero, of course.

We went to so many places throughout the day and the rain didn’t get anyone down! When we met the Higland cows, Fiona the coo and her pals definitely didn’t disappoint. They came over straight away posing for photos in return for some food! 

The Hairy coo tour has something for everyone – from people visiting Scotland and want to see a lot in a short space of time or people like myself who just want a fun day out. I’m already planned my next tour with them!
