When you say Scotland, we think of an isle where vast skies meet stormy seas and rolling hills. It only stands to reason that its produce would be as fresh and wholesome as its lochs, glens, and mountains are.

You could begin your day in a cozy Edinburgh café, where you’ll fuel up on shortbread or scones, and be briefed on all things haggis-related - who are we to tell you if the haggis bird is a mythical creature or not?

Maybe head over to one of the city’s food markets, where you’ll feast delicate slivers of salmon, prime Scotch beef burgers, preserves, cakes, and cured meats. Visit an award-winning specialty cheese store, or pop into a bakery where the wee double-crust Scotch pies are famous!

Perhaps, round off your day at a local watering hole and taste the aforementioned haggis served with neeps and tatties, washed down with a wee dram of single malt whisky.

You might have to roll home afterward, but for a feast like that, it’s worth it.
