main image Part of the site of Falkirk Tryst, Reddingmuir, Stirlingshire
Up until the 19th century, cattle were driven 'on the hoof' from the furthest points of the Highlands and Islands to a gathering point or 'tryst'. Crieff, on the edge of the Highlands, was a tryst site, as was Falkirk, Stirlingshire.

A network of drove roads brought them here. Once sold, they were driven on again to south-east England, where they were prepared for the London market.
