I will be very interested to read this book, as my "people" come from Sutherland, mostly from Golspie and surrounding area.

Cornflower

Golspie's not very far away from Lairg. My grandmother grew up in Ross-shire, to the south-east of Iby's home, about the same time as Iby writes of and her childhood must have been similar. I found the memoir fascinating for its social history as well as charming in itself.

Want to read this if only to find out what crappit heids are! Sounds really charming too.

Cornflower

Crappit heids are "fish heads stuffed with a mixture of oatmeal, suet, chopped fish livers, onion and seasonings. Greaseproof paper was tied securely round the heads and they were simmered gently. A more tasty dish one cannot imagine," says Iby.
