The Flower of Scottish Cattle Breeding
The Highland is an instantly recognisable Scottish favourite, and a true heritage breed. Its shaggy coat and short legs mean it is well suited to grazing on steep valley sides or on windswept moors, in often tough conditions. Its unqiue long in the mouth flavour results from the Highland taking longer to mature. This lets the flavour develop naturally, giving it an almost gamey character. This, and the fact the Highland is well marbled but not excessively so, makes this beef very popular with chefs.
