Red Angus

A 20 cow herd of Red Angus cattle is located 1000ft up in the Pentland Hills just south of Edinburgh in Scotland. It is one of the few all red pedigree Aberdeen Angus herds in the UK and has some of the most powerful Scottish genetics in the current bloodlines.  The emphasis on the breeding cows is for shape, proportional length and thickness, and they must be docile, have good legs and feet and traditional heads. The herd of today is the result of ruthless dispersal and careful selection of only the very best of heifers and using the highest quality red bulls that suit the cows.

Youngstock for Sale -  there is usually a selection of good quality heifers and bulls for sale privately in their first or second year at a reasonable price.

Visitors are very welcome after a quick call to check we are home (++ 00 44 (0)7836 729988) and we are easy to find -  a stoneís throw from the main A702 trunk road heading south from Edinburgh


This powerful and well proportioned bull is still our stock sire and we donít want to change him yet because he would be very hard to replace!  His calves are easily born, are consistently correct and well shaped and they inherit his quiet docile demeanour.  He had a highly successful show career before coming to us, winning most everything he was entered for, and he is a bull that keeps himself fit and mobile throughout the year, never putting on excess fat.

 At present we use AI on his retained daughters using the best matched red semen that we can find.
