About the Cheese

Bonnington Linn is one of the newest cheeses from Errington Cheese, a highly acclaimed farmhouse cheesemaker based in Lanarkshire who also makes the famous Corra Linn and Lanark Blue

Bonnington Linn is a firm cheddar-like cheese made by hand from raw milk of dairy goats using traditional rennet.

Matured for a minimum of 4 months, but often closer a year, it’s got a firm crumbly texture with pleasant nutty lingering notes in its flavour and a fresh zingy after-taste, which tends to disappear as the cheese matures. 


Cheesemaker: Errington Cheese

The Errington family, originally from Dumfriesshire, relocated to Lanarkshire in 1981, establishing a mixed farming enterprise with beef cattle and sheep. In the 1980s, Humphrey Errington started making cheese aiming to revive the tradition of raw milk cheese in Scotland.

Today, Humphrey's daughter, Selina Cairns, carries on the cheesemaking legacy, being one of the few in the UK to produce cheese from both sheep's and goat's milk.

The farm is home to around 100 goats, a mix of Saanen, Toggenburg, and Alpine breeds, whose milk is used to make Elrick Log, alongside their flock of Lacaune and Friesian sheep.
