Pedigree Castlemilk Moorit sheep



Castlemilk Moorit sheep, although classed as a primitive breed, were developed in the early 20th century by Sir Jock Buchanan-Jardine on his Castlemilk Estate in Dumfriesshire, Scotland. The breed was developed from the Manx Loaghtan, moorit Shetland and the wild Mouflon to create a sheep that would look beautiful on his parkland  and to provide kemp-free wool to make clothes for his workers.

Castlemilk Moorit sheep are on the Rare Breed Survival Trust watch list.

They are a hardy breed that don’t seem to suffer from fly strike and rarely have foot problems. Their mothering instinct is second to non, lamb incredibly easily, rarely needing assistance, even with twins.

We currently have 24 ewes and two tups and will occasionally sell our pedigree lambs and tups.
