Why this breed

The Hebridean is a remarkable creature. The descendants of Viking sheep brought by Scandinavian settlers to the Western Isles, they are very tough, thriving in cold, wet climates on rough grazing. They're an occasional sight in the more wild parts of the Dales and Fells. Recently, chefs have discovered the unique flavour of the breed, and we try and have it in stock as often as possible. The meat is unctuous and gamey in character, with a lean, sweet finish.
