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.

If you want an exclusive culinary experience, then look no further than Scotland’s Michelin-starred restaurants. We’ve got 16 across the country with no fewer than five in Edinburgh. This means the city (along with Dublin) has the second highest number of these award-winning restaurants outside London. 

If you head to Gleneagles in Perthshire, you’ll find Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, Scotland’s only two Michelin-starred restaurant, with an unrivalled menu which includes a signature dish of smoked lobster.

Edinburgh is home to a range of dedicated vegetarian restaurants, as well as cafés offering home-style dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll also find quality vegetarian eateries in Oban, Stirling and other parts of Scotland.

Many other restaurants also include excellent vegetarian options on their menus, meaning you’re never very far from a great meal.
