For a number of centuries the Highlanders came south to Crieff to sell their black cattle whose meat and hides were avidly sought by the growing urban populations in Lowland Scotland and the north of England. The town acted as a gathering point or tryst for the Michaelmas cattle sale held each year and the surrounding fields and hillsides were black with the tens of thousands of cattle - some from as far away as Caithness and the Outer Hebrides.
View is from the old Drove Road over Laggan Hill. This is the first view that Drovers would have had of their destination when taking cattle to the tryst at Crieff from the highlands and islands.
