Meat from Hebridean sheep is totally different to supermarket lamb. It has a rich dark hue, succulent tender texture and delicious game-like flavour. Hebrideans are primitive sheep and as such are slow to grow/mature, this allows the Hebrideans to enjoy a longer, more natural life and for their meats flavour to develop fully in a way we now rarely have the opportunity to appreciate. Recent tests have shown that Hebridean meat has significantly lower cholesterol levels that most other breeds of lamb.
“The meat from Hebridean sheep is unique. It has a rich, dark colour, succulent tender texture and a gamey, utterly delicious flavour. Tasted against locally produced butchers' lamb and some very good Welsh lamb, there was no contest: the Hebridean won hands down. It was tender with a really good bite, rich but didn't leave that greasy, fatty taste in the mouth and it was so full of flavour that some of the young tasters couldn't believe it really was lamb."
