The White Cattle used to graze beneath the magnificent Cadzow Oaks, behind the hunting lodge at Chatelherault above the Avon Gorge. When the Dukes of Hamilton abandoned their patrimony in the 1960's they removed the herd of White Cattle to Lennoxlove in East Lothian. However in 1987, the Duke allowed six of the herd to return to Chatelherault with the hope that they will establish another breeding herd. In the meantime the Duke's herd at Lennoxlove is the only herd of White Park Cattle in Scotland.
White Park Cattle are the ultimate status symbol, the one that no amount of money can buy. The late Duke (Hereditary Keeper of the Palace of Holyrood House) did however give a steer and two heifers to Princess Anne to establish a herd at Gatcombe in Gloucestershire. As ever, it is a question of who you know.
