numerous accounts of the drovers' tracks
There are "old worthies" in the village who talk about swimming and driving beasts across from the Isles to the marts. So there must be records somewhere, as a suggestion local historical societies here must have good info. There's even a statue at the Dingwall Mart showing a drover.

That's very cool--one theory about the etymology of the term "cracker" (a pejorative here in the States for ye American cousins) is that it refers to the cracking whips of drovers who practiced transhumance the way they did back in Scotland and Ulster. Otherwise, cattle herding on the frontier--both of Scottish "black cattle" and wild Spanish longhorns--made for an interesting melding of cultures, with people from the British "Celtic Fringe" to the vaqueros of New Spain to herdsmen from West Africa bringing their contributions.
