The Highlands and Islands serve up a truly mouth-watering array of food and drink experiences. From tastings of local specialities to distillery and brewery tours, it is a land of sensory sensations.

Whether the desire is for fresh seafood or artisan gins, strong cheeses or sweet conserves, wild mushrooms or Scotch lamb, there is something here to satisfy all tastes and appetites. For some, the joy might be in savoury Stornoway black pudding or haggis served for breakfast, while for others it may be the contemporary cuisine served with a traditional twist in one of the many restaurants setting new standards for food and drink experiences in the Highlands and Islands.
