I regularly roast leg of lamb and it's always fab. I cook it really high for 30 mins then low for another 2.5-3 hours. Should I do the same with the shoulder?

Yes, that sounds about right.

Are you cooking it on the bone or are you boning it out, stuffing and rolling it?

Both need the same cooking time I reckon.

I put it in a very hot oven covered in tin foil, then turn the oven down to 160 and leave it there for 5-6 hours. Obviously lots of rosemary, thyme, whole garlic cloves. It's delicious, with meat falling off the bone.

Fab that's what I was hoping for. Is half a shoulder with the bone in (just for the 4 of us)

I am too late for this but Rick Stein does an absolutely delicious braised shoulder of lamb. You cook it slowly in a lot of rose wine, and eat with flageolets. It's gorgeous.
