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.

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.
