Chasing Sheep on a Cliff in 1930’s Scotland

There’s a wonderful store in Boulder, CO. called Gypsy wool. They posted this silent film clip on their Facebook page. Love this.

2 Thoughts on “Chasing Sheep on a Cliff in 1930’s Scotland

  1. That was cool–thanks!
    Being a Scottish Jamieson myself, I wonder if that woman was a great aunt?!

    It was interesting to see them pluck the sheep.
    No idle hands back then…

  2. This has totally stirred my heart! Wonderful! AND at the end of the film you can go on and watch two more – Crofter’s Life in Shetland (almost an hour) and Scenes From a Shetland Croft Life (6 minutes).

    Thanks Gail!
