One of the pleasures of visiting a country is sampling its native dishes. And in Scotland, despite its northerly latitude, our hills, rivers, forests, farms and seas provide one of the richest and most varied menus in Europe.

Thus many of their dishes assumed a local character, based on the ingredients available to them. Find good Scottish recipes.

The secret is to bring layers of clothing so that you are prepared for all weather conditions. Check out the weather forecast.
