  • We come here every year.
    We are driven to.
    We cannot miss this event.
    It is part of our history.
    Part of our culture.
    We gather together.
    All of us.
    Shoulder to shoulder.
    We must.
    We are hill farmers.
    We raise sheep.

    (The Lairg Lamb Sale is the biggest one-day sale in Europe, with 30,000 lambs sold in one day.)
