Highland Cattle are some of the most distinctive in the world. With her son Angus and his family, the remarkable Ena MacNeill has grown the Ardbhan Fold of Highland Cattle from one heifer to several hundred breeding cows.

The film explores the history of the Fold and how they manage them on the extraordinary Vallay island, North Uist. Some of the best of their breed, the cattle are coveted by other breeders and are exported across Europe.
