Welcome

Welcome to The Hirsel, a small family farm located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Scottish Highlands, near Ardgay on the Dornoch Firth.  The Hirsel is managed by Donald and Donna Gillies, and we raise Hebridean sheep, as well as an assortment of crops – choosing Scottish heritage breeds and seeds whenever possible, with an emphasis on living and working with our animals and resident wildlife in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.

This site is a work in progress, check back often for news and updates!
