Tour Scotland Photograph Highland Ponies Glen Mallie
Tour Scotland photograph of Highland Ponies in Glen Mallie, a large glen branching off about two and a half miles from the East end of Loch Arkaig in the Highlands of Scotland. The Highland Pony is a native Scottish pony, and is one of the largest of the mountain and moorland pony breeds of the British Isles. Its pedigree dates back to the 1880s. It was once a workhorse in the Scottish mainland and Highlands and Islands, but today is used for driving, trekking and general riding. They are very hardy and tough, they rarely require shoeing, and are very economical to keep. The Highland Pony is one of the three native breeds of the Scottish Highlands and Islands, the others are the Shetland pony and the Eriskay pony.
