Lovat Scouts harnessing a horse at Inverbroom

The Lovat Scouts were raised originally by Lord Lovat and took part in the Boer War. The main recruits were stalkers, ghillies and shepherds from the north of Scotland. Reformed in 1903 and becoming part of the Territorial Army in 1908 they were classed as mounted infantry. Legend has it that to be a member you had to be able to provide your own horse. They were renowned for their ability to close to the enemy when gathering intelligence and for their shooting skills. These Lovat Scouts are probably getting ready for their annual training camp. Inverbroom is situated a mile or so east of the head of Loch Broom on the south side of the River Broom.
