Food in Scotland?

Jump to last reply

Yes, I know there is food, but how is it? Outside the cities, in small towns and hotels? We are thinking of a 6- day walk through the Highlands but food is more than fuel for us. We Appreciate good fresh local food if it is healthy, but I do not eat beef, lamb, mutton, game, or any kind of sausage. Fish and vegetables are my favorites, but I would tire of salmon every day. We don't care for sweets ( cakes, etc.) so can't fill up on those.

My concern arises from some comments by my son and his wife, who drove about Scotland for a few days (5) in 2002. They said the food they found was mediocre, especially over- cooked vegetables and too much fatty meat. Have things changed since then? Is the cooking more up to date? Or is it still as they described once we leave the city?

I enjoyed wonderful meals in Ireland when I was there, some 15 years ago, and was expecting the same in Scotland. But maybe that is unrealistic?
