St. Andrew’s Day is Nearly Here

If you know anything about Scotland, you’ll know that we don’t need much convincing when it comes to celebrations. St. Andrew’s Day is coming up and we’re all very excited. The atmosphere on St. Andrews is great, with everyone in high spirits – especially us here at the Scotsman!

If you’re not Scottish – St. Andrew’s Day happens every year on the 30th of November. It’s a bank holiday (so lots of people get the day off work!) and Scotland’s national day. So, as you can imagine, all things Scottish are celebrated including our traditional food, drink and music.

At the North Bridge Brasserie, our chef Paul Hart will be using plenty of proper Scottish ingredients to create lunches and dinners. Most of us here at the Scotsman are fairly local, so if you don’t have a clue about some of our more traditional foods, like haggis, neeps and tatties, then just ask one of us. But, we promise – they are delicious. There’s also our new Whisky Tasting Experience which is proving quite popular already. We tried it out and loved the dram from the Highlands, although all of them were very nice, and there’s something very special about knowing that all the whiskies come from Scotland.

Just up the road, the Palace of Holyroodhouse will be open to visitors. There will undoubtedly be more whisky and Scottish food here, if you aren’t already full. In the evening, there will be people performing and concerts. We’ll be listening out for the ceilidh bands, because wherever there is ceilidh, there is dancing!
