Sheep on the tiny island of Scalpay, near Harris were keen to not get their feet wet when making one of their many trips to pastures new this week.
On a regular trip to Hamersay Island sheep are normally ushered or carried onto the boat, but yesterday they seemed quite happy to get onboard.
Donald MacLeod, who makes Scalpay Harris Tweed with wife Catherine, said: “It is not the first time we have brought the boat into the harbour to take the sheep to the island, but it is the first time they have gone into the boat themselves, and someone just happened to have a camera to film it.
Mr MacLeod, who is a fisherman, a Harris Tweed weaver and a crofter, continued: “We normally take them down ourselves but this time, my friend Donald and I decided to see if they would go down themselves and they did.
“My cousin, William Benji Morrison, was away at the time, and without that footage he would not have believed me.
“If that film gives people a little bit of a giggle then that is what it is all about.”
The sheep, that are all lambs, will stay on the island for a few weeks before heading back to Scalpay, where they will become next year’s ewes.
Ms MacLeod added: “The reaction to the video has been great fun.”
