There can be no doubt real hill shepherding is a dying profession with little if any money in the sector and, as a result, fewer sheep farmed on the highest of hills, but next week's Shepherding Exhibition in Argyll aims to go some way at least to recording those traditional skills.

The event, staged at the Clachan, Cairndow, Argyll, on Friday, September 29 at 12 noon, is supported by Historic Environment Scotland and Addyman Archaeology, and will include an introduction by George Findlater and Tom Addyman, and presentations from Jenni Morrison and Liz Jones, followed by Here We Are's AGM.

The exhibition is based on the work needed to recover the natural sheep fanks used at Ardkinglass, Cairndow, more than 20 years ago which had become hidden by bracken and natural regeneration.
