The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Eat Like a Locavore in Scotland


2. Where to Eat

Try dishes like pastry-wrapped whole trout at the Forth Inn.  

Bite into a burger made from Highlands beef at the Lade Inn, a convivial, family-run joint located at the foot of Ben Ledi. Wash it down with a pint of craft ale from their on-site ale shop.

Pull up a barstool at the Forth Inn in Aberfoyle, a cozy pub and restaurant known for its selection of hard-to-find malt whiskey, locally sourced produce, and a robust fireplace.

Be a carnivore at the Ardeonaig Hotel Restaurant, a white-linen-tablecloth establishment where the locavore menu, designed by Nelson Mandela’s former personal chef, draws on the hotel’s cattle herd and flock of black-faced sheep. For a less formal experience, dine in the subterranean cellar room surrounded by bottles of South African wines.

Order bubble and squeak and other pub food with a straight face at the Old Mill in Killearn, a tiny parish north of Glasgow. Even the condiments are made on-site.
