deer hunting in the highlands in the auld days!
In medieval times, red deer were hunted in Scotland by driving large numbers of them across the hills and through woods into traps called ‘teinchels’, where hunters lay in wait. The link between deer and trees at that time led to the term ‘deer forest’ – still applied to some upland areas that are now treeless.
thought i wid show ye this for two reasons obviously it wis an important part o scotlnds history and aw these dugs with the exception o ma two deerhounds are rescued and we did this a few years back to make a calander tae raise funds for the greyhound rescue folk in scotland. obviously i never took the photy but i thought ye wid like tae see it
after the disaster at culloden when the highland way o life wis destroyed hunting became a sport for the rich and indigenous folk lost everything
