Britain's 'loneliest sheep' rescued after two years at foot of cliff | 4 Nov 2023 | A ewe that was hailed Britain's loneliest sheep has been rescued by a group of farmers from a remote shingle beach in the Scottish Highlands. The sheep, called Fiona and wearing a huge fleece, had been stranded at the foot of cliffs on the Cromarty Firth for at least two years, with an animal welfare charity having deemed rescue attempts "incredibly complex." But five farmers managed to haul her up a steep slope, and now plan to deliver her to a farm park. The rescue mission was organised by Cammy Wilson, a sheep shearer from Ayrshire and a presenter on the BBC's Landward programme, after seeing media coverage of Fiona's plight.
