Beautiful, scenic Edinburgh with its castle at its heart, captures a mix of both modern city vibes with a distinctly historic setting. Wander down the cobbled streets, glancing down winding nooks and crannies in awe at how quaint and seemingly secluded you can feel in a major city. There’s even escapism during the famous Fringe festival which sees the city heaving.
With incredible local produce from Highland game to fresh seafood, including plump Orkney scallops, there’s no need to go for a cosmopolitan option here. The food is evenly matched by their passion for making some of the world’s best, and certainly oldest, whisky. Whether it’s dining in the foot hills of the iconic castle or venturing down the hills into Stockbridge, there are some stunning settings for food.
So sit back, pour a large glass of single malt, and feast on traditional Scottish fare that shows off incredible craftsmanship and a sense of pride in their heritage.
