Her mantra, shared within the Tasting Scotland team is straightforward “if you want to understand a country then understand its food and drink traditions. The Scottish larder is quite simply bursting with iconic food and drink, with each region producing must try specialities with their own unique tale. It’s the tastiest, most accessible way to really get to know a country”.

We look forward to welcoming you to the real Scotland.
