Summer Mission: Eating Scotland

Home » Blog » Restaurant Reviews » Summer Mission: Eating Scotland

Hey guys, Johan here with a behind the scenes update and a call for help.

Just wanted to let you know that in a week’s time, the girls and I will attempt to hike and eat our way through Scotland as we tackle the 135 kilometers of the Speyside Way walking trail. Being the major foodie that I am, I will of course have a look at the local cuisine along the way and hopefully drag my lovely travel companions down with me as we try to figure out the ins and outs of Scottish cuisine.

Now, honestly, I’ve heard some pretty questionable things about Scottish cuisine (or supposed lack thereof) and with staples such as stuffed sheep’s guts and deep-fried Mars Bars, I have a feeling the culinary aspects of the tour might be as challenging than the physical. Still, I will try to compile for you roundup of our culinary adventures and the current state of Scottish cuisine on here on – I mean, it can’t possibly be as bad as some people say, right?

If anyone has suggestions for must-trys in Scottish food, feel free to drop us a comment and we’ll do our best to seek them out. In other words, if you want to help me out discovering new things (or just watch me suffer), now is your chance!

Oh, did I mention there’ll be Whisky, too? We’ll be in Scotland, after all. More specifically we will be visting the Glenfiddich and Glenlivet distilleries, and hopefully come back bearing loot. Expect some sort of report from these experiences as well!

Stay tuned for updates from the trip and don’t shy away from giving us a like on Facebook where we will attempt to post updates, thoughts and pictures from the trip – as we walk the walk.
