Scottish food tends to be hearty and warming, designed to sustain those bitter highland winters whilst providing nourishment and a generous helping of comfort food. Plenty of fresh fish, oats and root veg are used within Scottish cuisine making it awholesome type of cooking which can be easly replicated at home.
Some classic scottish sweet treats include drop scones which can be eaten fr breakfast or a pick-me-up sugar fix. Scotch broth and Loch Fayne smoked salmon both make healthy Scottish meal ideas and can be enjoyed as a light lunch. Round off with some sticky Scottish tablet. Truly moorish..
