Scottish Food superb flavours and finest drinks.

The Highlands of Scotland are a wonderful gourmet's paradise where top rated pubs and restaurants can be found everywhere you go. From a back street bistro in the Highland hub Inverness to the remotest villages around Loch Ness you will unexpectedly come across a place where traditional Scottish food cooked in the traditional way will delight your palate.

There are local breweries and distillers offering wines and spirits, many of which you will not find outside of the Highlands, and the local home baking is legendary. Like all great recipes, these elements all combine to provide you with a dining experience you will never forget.
