Title: Are there really more sheep than people in Scotland?
Post by: P-Kasso2 on 01 March, 2018, 04:11:09 PM
A friend of mine just proudly told me that there are squillions more sheep in Scotland than people!  I harrumphed and said there are probably millions more deep-fried Mars bars in Scotland than people - but sheep?  Surely not? 

To  be honest I don't know if there is or if there isn't. So I thought I'd better ask for a second opinion...

Are there really more sheep than people in Scotland?  And who's counted them?

The answer is that there ARE more sheep than people in Scotland, over a million more sheep than people. 

At the last count Scotland had a population of 5,424,800 people outnumbered by 6,701,376 sheep. Bring on the mint sauce, Jimmy!!

PS  I noticed that here are a staggering three times as many sheep as people in Wales. So it's true then about sheep and the Welsh?
