Scottish food and drink

Scotland is renowned for its unrivalled produce, and its unspoilt habitats and varied weather are perfect for producing a wide variety of high quality fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and meat and much more.

The country’s fantastic natural larder has inspired many world-class chefs and this is reflected in Scotland being home to no less than 16 Michelin-starred restaurants.

Enjoy sumptuous dishes and exceptional culinary experiences across Scotland from unique cafes and award-winning fish and chip shops to traditional restaurants and world-class eateries. Why not pick-up some of Scotland’s culinary offerings direct from the producers at the country’s outstanding farmers’ markets?

Head to one of Scotland’s fun and informative food festivals that are held throughout the year to celebrate and showcase local produce and culinary talent.
