Ian Wilson's hay is made on upland permanent pastures it contains at least four or five different grasses and a whole excursion flora of herbs, the goats love it. You need six dry, sunny and preferably breezy days to make good hay. Six dry days here on the west coast are hard to find, like hen's teeth. That's why we make big bales of haylage, partially fermented grass that is pickled and can be harvested after two dry days. Goats are traditionalists, they prefer good hay.

I should also mention the drive home from Salen along Loch Sunart ( the "Corniche") its so beautiful there should be a toll paid for driving those 20 miles.
Some others travelers, particularly Dormice, have a different view of this road and claim that they lose the will to live after and hour of narrow, twisting death defying motoring.
