Sheep on Boreray
These few sheep are at the extreme northern end of Boreray. How they got there is a complete mystery to me, and how they could get out again even more so.

Further south in the square, and in NA1504, there is plenty of grass which I imagine supports the continuing population of Boreray sheep.
