About Scottish Dunface SheepAbout Scottish Dunface Sheep

Scottish Dunface (also known as Old Scottish Short-wool, Scottish Whiteface, or Scottish Tanface) are an extinct breed of sheep originally from Scotland. They were part of the Northern European short-tailed sheep group, and they were probably similar to the sheep kept throughout the British Isles in the Iron Age. By the mid-nineteenth century they had mostly been displaced by the Scottish Blackface and became extinct on the mainland of Scotland in the late nineteenth century. However, several local types of Dunface survived on islands around Scotland, giving rise to or contributing to existing breeds including the Shetland, North Ronaldsay, Hebridean and Boreray.
