Scotland for Foodies

The old view of food in Scotland - yum? Never fear! The food scene is changing - for the better. And there are several great new resources about finding local - and classic - Scottish Food. Take a look...


At A Traveler's Library, a recent article entitled Exploring Scottish Food - One Bite at a Time shares classic Scottish food (such as haggis), Scottish seafood, best Fish & Chips in the UK!, Scottish fruit, Scottish cheese, Scottish desserts, Scottish grocery stores, eating out in Scotland (we love the Tea Garden, Hot Roast, and Inverawe Smokehouses, among many favorites), and drinking (naturally! Pubs are famous for more than their looks).
