Join a local foodie and enjoy a meal at a historic pub serving traditional Scottish cuisine or at a neighbourhood restaurant that serves contemporary twists on the nation’s favourite dishes. Get off the tourist trail and discover eateries that serve authentic dishes, using fresh and seasonal ingredients and classic recipes. Enjoy a soft drink, or try an excellent local craft beer or a dram of Scotch whisky with your meal.
