Man I was so excited to see this headline:
Tourists to Scotland ‘let down by quality of food’
The piece just writes itself:
If you don't like Scottish food, do as us Scots do and just drink all day.
Going to Scotland for the food is like going to France for military training.
Haggis: it's nae sa bad!
But sadly, the actual piece is just quoting a bloviating blowhard Scotsman complaining that not enough people eat in his restaurant at Gleneagles, which is actually about the most Non-Scottish place in all of Scotland. There's no data given that tourists complain about food quality.
The closest thing in the whole story is this:
Recent research found half of people visiting Scotland want to try local food while two-thirds think quality food is an important factor when deciding where to go on holiday.
So to Andrew Fairlie I say, "away wi ye now, ya daft wee cuntie". And to all prospective visitors to Scotland I say go for the hiking, scenery, golf and whisky. By all means, eat if you must. But try to avoid the "local delicacies"
