This recipe is from Hamish Taylor from Flodabay eastern Harris. He says it is nothing new but is his family favourite. The final taste (and smell) of roast lamb is significantly influenced by what it has been fed on, according to Hamish: he finds that lamb raised on heather or heathland (part grass and part heather) is far tastier than lamb raised on grass alone.
