Scotland’s Larder provides the inspiration for many of our dishes, none more so than our Haggis Neeps & Tatties. We only use wild Haggis, responsibly caught from a sustainable population.

The Wild Haggis (Haggis scoticus) is a creature native to the Scottish Highlands. The Wild Haggis’s right and left legs are of different lengths, allowing it to run quickly around the steep mountains and hillsides which make up its natural habitat, but only in one direction. Owing to a process of natural selection, there are therefore two varieties of Wild Haggis, one with longer left legs and the other with longer right legs. The former variety can run clockwise around a mountain while the latter can run anticlockwise.

The traditional way to capture a Wild Haggis is to dig a large hole in which to hide and then, as it approaches, leap up and yell, “BOOOO!!” in its face as loudly as your lungs permit. This will cause the animal to take fright, recoil and turn to attempt to run in the opposite direction, the consequences of which will be immediately apparent.
