Sheepdog demonstrations- I have been workings with dogs on sheep since I was 11 years old , some 35 years ago. I am a full time crofter with cows and sheep to look after. I run my dogs at sheepdog Trials in the North of Scotland. I am keen to share this ancient practice with a wider audience

My wife and I really enjoyed this experience. Seumas was very friendly and accommodating and he took the time to answer the group’s questions and he talked about the history of the area. We learned so much and loved the dogs and the rams. You should definitely try this experience out for yourselves.

Watching Seumus work with the dogs was great - he really is a pro. It was very genuine and we felt like we’d been invited to have a glimpse way beyond the surface into the life of a Croft’s on Skye.
