Scotland has many of its own traditions when it comes to food. Boasting world-class food, from top quality seafood, to fresh fruit and vegetables! There are some traditional Scottish foods that you must try on your trip to Scotland. Haggis is one of the most traditional meals in Scotland, truly representing the country's culture. To cook the meal, every part of the animal is used, it is then finished with herbs, spices and seasoning adding lots of flavour to the meal! If Haggis doesn't appeal, that's ok because Scotland's cuisine has much more to offer. The country offers sensational seafood, that is organically colonised in fresh Scottish waters. A personal recommendation when visiting Scotland would be to visit Corrour Station House, hidden away in the Scottish Highlands, you will be able to enjoy a mixture of traditional Scottish, British and European food. The remote restaurant offers spectacular views over a picturesque lake and has a warm welcoming roaring fire.
