Lamb Hot Pot

This will serve four people. Though not a traditional Scottish dish it is often served in our restaurants. It is also known as traditional Lancashire hot pot or lamb and leek hotpot, though this uses different vegetables. In addition to this version there are also Irish lamb hot pot recipes available.

Maw Broon has an alternative lamb hot pot recipe in her new book Maw Broon's But An' Ben Cookbook which uses additional ingredients such as sheep's kidneys and chopped mushrooms.

Scottish Zombie Novel Book

The North-East of Scotland skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out towards Aberdeen, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?

The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of Scottish horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.
