Shadows on a cow byre

This is the front of an old stone cow byre, which is beside an old croft house in Hillside, Auckengill. The land that the house and byre stands on has now been decrofted.

  8. Fantastic photo. Altho, being American, I had to go to google and find out what byre and croft meant. LOL...glad I did, now I understand it all. None-the-less, I do LOVE the photo.
