Quick Reference

A Scottish hard cheese made from cow's milk, not dissimilar to Cheddar. It originated in the Ayrshire village of Dunlop in the late seventeenth century, and the circumstances of its birth are quite well documented: a certain Margaret Gilmour settled in the village in 1688, having apparently learned the techniques of whole-milk cheesemaking in Ireland, and the products of her creamery went down well with Scots used hitherto only to skimmed-milk cheeses.
