    7 Foodie CalMac Ferry Trips

    There are few things, to me, more Scottish than sitting on a CalMac ferry sailing out to one of the isles tucking into their famous Mac ‘n’ Cheese (made with super creamy and tasty Lockerbie Cheddar) as I enjoy a bottle of local ale. And the good news for us all is that you can enjoy a real smorgasbord of local…

  3. Taste Perthshire

    The bountiful Scottish region of Perthshire these days screams produce. And fresh, local produce at that. Perthshire after all is home to some of the finest soft fruits in Europe and was the site of Scotland’s first farmers’ market (in Perth itself). It boasts a heaving natural larder stocked with world-class salmon and lamb, not to mention the only two…

  6. Cowal Peninsula (c) Robin McKelvie

    Cowal – Scotland’s Forgotten Peninsula, an Epic Land of Sea Lochs, Rugged Hills and World Class Seafood.

    It says a lot when even most of my Scottish friends asked ‘where?’ when I said I was heading off to The Cowal Peninsula. It said even more when they all started guessing, with a few sticking it in the Highlands and one even floating this Argyll oasis off to the Shetland Isles. Cowal may not be well known, but,…

  7. Beaches, Museums and Lobster – Travel Around East Lothian, Scotland’s Sunniest Region

    It may only be a short drive east of Edinburgh, but I think that the Scottish region of East Lothian is one of the most criminally unexplored corners of the country.

  9. Perthshire – Scotland’s Foodie Heartland

    If you are heading to Perthshire forget all the anachronistic images you might have of Scottish food being all about shortbread and deep-fried Mars Bars. Perth, Scotland’s newest city, and Perthshire these days boast the country’s only two Michelin star restaurant, produce 90% of Scotland’s soft fruits and offer some of the best freshwater fish and lamb in the UK….
