Wow! … one of my all time favourite things
I was happily surprised! Stephen (our incredibly kind-hearted, knowledgeable, and welcoming chef/historian/host) provided an exciting new appreciation for Scotland’s celebrated dish. From the tour of the farm to the haggis history and demonstration to the exquisite tasting, I enjoyed every moment. You’ll laugh, you’ll eat, you’ll learn - what more could you ask for? Thank you Stephen for your warm welcome and hospitality!
And, of course, for the amazing meal.
Will recommend 10/10! (I highly encourage Haggis Experience attendees to plan out travel before day of event! Opt for bus (stops in Balfron) or by personal/rental car)
The Haggis Experience is a must
