Lochaber and Skye police have also emphasised that people should ‘be patient, kind and accommodating’ and that a ‘wee wave helps too’ whilst being mindful of cows and other road users.

To emphasise their message of cow safety, the police posted a video on their Twitter account of a driver stopping – with jazz music audible in the background – to make way for a hairy cow.
