Grub of Scotland

I've heard bad jokes about British cuisine, so we were pleasantly surprised at the quality, selection and reasonable price of the fare available during our trip to Scotland in 2015. Below are some of the nice plates we enjoyed in Edinburgh and in Dunkeld and Birnam.

The selection of casks ales was a highlight. In much the way micro-brewing has gone berserk in the USA, so too, in Britain there are lots of small brewers creating these delicious and satisfying cask-conditioned ales. 

We were staying at the Carlton, just off the Royal Mile, and there was a great pub, the Albanach, that we couldn't stay away from. We also enjoyed nice meals at the Taybank Pub and Royal Dunkeld Hotel in Dunkeld.
