Herd's Horn

This illustration was taken from "Argyll's Highlands" by Cuthbert Bede. It shows 'The Herd's Horn'. The origins of the horn are unknown but it came into the possession of The Kintyre Club through the late Peter Reid. When it was discovered that Mr Reid had bought the horn from 'auld McGregor' at the herd's hut, Whinney Hill, the townsfolk strongly objected to the purchase, as the horn had been part of their heritage for as long as they could remember
