Scotland has the most amazing abundance of natural produce. In coastal areas you must sample the seafood from squat lobsters to smoked salmon. In the countryside you'll pass sheep and cattle in the fields, from Aberdeen Angus to the classic hairy coo and fields upon fields of luscious fruit. We use all of this in our menus and choose the restaurants we visit carefully to reflect the high quality of Scottish fare.
