The North Ronaldsay sheep is classified as a primitive, short tail sheep and is extremely rare.  Its robustness and hardiness is ideal for the estuarine, salty marsh meadows at Lauriston.  Lauriston have about one hundred and fifty breeding ewes and five rams.

They sheep/mutton's are not castrated so the meat has a wonderful full flavour.  It is hung for ten days.



The chump is a cut of meat from the back end of a sheep just above the leg. It is often cut into chops, and has a rich lamb flavour. Lamb chump chops can be prepared on your grill, but if it isn't grilling season you can make them just as well in a pan on your hob.
