Scottish Deer Centre

Just up the road from Falkland is the Scottish Deer Centre. Lots of deer there, but also birds of prey, cows, sheep and recently, otters. I've still never been lucky enough to see otters in the wild, but I have seen a Highland cow! 'Blackmail' originates from highland cows as they were typically black and used as money or trading. It wasn't until later that the MacGregors' changed the meaning to what we know now as they demanded cattle for protection and immunity to raids.
