Eating out

In Scotland there are eateries to suit every occasion and budget, from picturesque cafés and tearooms renowned for their homebaking, to bars for a quick bite to eat. There is also a an excellent range of fish and chip shops and an enviable selection of fine dining and award-winning establishments which offer a real foodie treat. Wherever you are in the country, there’s always a regional flavour to the menu to perfectly capitalise on the very best locally sourced produce.

Furthermore, there are plenty international influences in our dishes too, and if you head to Glasgow you’ll see why, with a fantastic range of Indian cuisine. That is why the city has held the coveted title of Curry Capital of Britain an impressive four times.

After a sumptuous three-course dinner, why not relax with a dram of whisky, Scotland’s national drink? With so many varieties, from the peaty malts of the west coast to the smoother flavours of the south, there is something for everyone.
