Food in Scotland

Whilst Scottish Smoked Salmon is widely available around the world, you may be new to Scottish smoked venison or smoked duck. There are a wide variety of cheeses that you must try such as Cheddar from the Isle of Arran or Crowdie, a Scottish cream cheese. Pair these with oatcakes and relishes made in Perthshire. Other fantastic products include cold pressed rapeseed oil, taken from the fields of Scotland. This is a versatile ingredient and makes a great alternative to olive oil for cooking or dressings. Scallops from the West Coast or Arbroath Smokies from the East are also in the ‘must-sample’ category. For those with a sweet-tooth, you are spoiled for choice. Try shortbread or perhaps tablet (similar to fudge, but even sweeter!). Dundee Cakes, Bannocks and even locally made chocolates should be found and enjoyed. Raspberries, Strawberries and Gooseberries can be incorporated in to home-made desserts or devoured freshly picked. Accompany your meal with a choice of beverages – locally brewed ales, whiskies, liqueurs or perhaps fruit cordials – again, these can be purchased as gifts or souvenirs from your trip. Whatever your taste – meat-eater, pescetarian or vegetarian, you will find Scottish produce that you will want to take home with you.
