Restaurants in Scotland
Scotland isn't known for its cuisine, but that may be changing. A foodie wave is sweeping across the country, revolutionizing the way Scottish people eat. Many Scotland restaurants now offer cuisines from across the globe. Representative of the trend is Boath House, a luxury Scottish hotel/restaurant in Nairn that is frequently cited as one of the best restaurants in Scotland. The chefs at Boath House work tirelessly to allow both hotel residents and restaurant guests to have new and exciting things to eat—the menu often changes daily.
But don't overlook the local food, either. Scottish cuisine is folksy and utilitarian: brothy soups made of neeps and tatties (turnip and potato); rumbledethumps, a traditional dish made of potato, cabbage and onion; and haggis, Scotland's national dish, is served at many Scottish restaurants. Haggis is comprised of offal or leftover meat, stuffed into a sheep or pig's stomach, and then boiled. Many restaurants in Scotland are putting a modern, creative spin on the country's traditional foods, as well. If you’re in the mood to try some famous Scottish bread desserts, visit Sugar & Spice in Auchterarder. They serve everything from sandwiches to their world-famous Scotch pies.
