Speciality food stores across Scotland
Food is a big part of our travels, we love to try the local cuisine out wherever we go. Since we now mostly live in AirBnbs or self-catering flats, we tend to buy local produce and cook ourselves if we have the time. This has led to culinary discoveries for us across Scotland which we listed out yesterday.
Full list with details: 9 speciality food items from across Scotland
Our list summarized :
- Hammond Charcuterie products – Edinburgh Farmers market
- MacLeod & MacLeod Black pudding – Stornoway
- Smoked cheese – Highland charcuterie, Sutherland
- Loch Harport Oysters – Carbost, Isle of Skye
- Orkney lamb – E Flett butchers, Stromness Orkney
- Laphroaig jam – Islay
- Smoked & fresh fish – Andy Race Fish Merchants, Mallaig
- Haggis – Isle of Arran butchers, Blackwaterfoot, Arran
- Tunnocks (dark chocolate) teacakes – Glasgow
I'd love to know your favourite local food item (can be from a butcher / fishmonger / farmer) from your Scotland experiences.
