Once known for foods such as deep-fried chocolate bars, Scotland now has plenty of eateries that serve high-quality Scottish fare made from the nation’s excellent fresh meat, fish, and produce. Following are some recommended culinary favorites.
 
Must-Try Dishes 
  • Considered the quintessential Scottish dish, haggis combines ground beef with oats, spices, and salt to make a savory comfort food.
  • Other sausages such as black pudding (blood sausage) get rave reviews, along with the Scottish salmon and other seafood.
  • Look for fish supper (fish and chips) for a casual meal at any time of day. 
  • Top off a meal with sweet treats such as shortbread and Scottish tablet, a delectable crystallized fudge.
 
Must-Do Experiences
  • Scotland produces some of the best whisky in the world, thanks in part to the purity of its water.
  • Day trips from Edinburgh offer a closer look at the traditional methods used at whisky distilleries such as Famous Grouse, Glengoyne, or Deanston, followed by tastings of their spirits.
  • Choose to combine a whisky tasting with sightseeing on a full-day tour to destinations such as Loch Ness, the Rosslyn Chapel, or the Scottish Borders.
  • See more on a multi-day tour to regions like Speyside or the Isle of Islay, where you can visit several whisky distilleries and small towns, all set in a spectacular landscape.
