The elusive Scottish Wild Cat is a tough character and one that has endured the worse weather and conditions thrown at it.
Peter Cairns has managed to photograph this shy creature and has a very interesting website called the Highland Tiger which informs the reader about the difficult task of tracking and monitoring this endagered animal.
The wildcat is of great significance to all members of Clan Macpherson, since it is has for centuries been the Crest of the Chief and the emblem used to mark membership of our Macpherson heritage and Clan.
The family motto warns; not to touch the cat without a glove!
Sir William Macpherson of Cluny - 27th Chief of Clan Macpherson
