DF asks what the string line is. Is it trail, or animal fence, or something else?

Magnificent Mountain views and with pastoral sheep.

Sometimes farmers round our way will string a couple of lines of fencing like that to keep walkers on the footpath, but unless they use electric fencing it doesn't seem to deter the livestock if they decide the grass over there is greener.

I would expect strands of tape like that to be electrified. Or perhaps it's a bluff, and the animals think it's electrified but the owner has set up the tapes but hasn't turned on the current! Of course, humans might respond the same way. Is the owner's name Pavlov?

Yes, most probably electric.  Some horse owners near us have similar fabric tape with an electrode wire sewn in.  The rope seems to be threaded through plastic insulators.  Why there are two lines is a mystery.
I once (last years) got shocked by an electric fence (on a textile hike with a friend).  It was no joke.  I was trembling for some minutes afterwards.
