Alternate Dining in Scotland

As is the case with most leisure travel, many of our clients ask about things they can do to get a real flavour of Scotland during a trip.  Obviously there are many things that fall into this category, but one thing I would recommend that any visitor should do when in Scotland (particularly if they are interested in local food) is to try a “fish supper” for dinner on one night of your trip.  This consists of fish and chips (fries), usually wrapped in newspaper and served with salt and vinegar.  It is basically fast food and can make a tasty alternative to the formal dining that you may be doing for the majority of a trip.

As with all restaurants, quality varies but usually if you are by the coast (where the Links courses are located) the quality is pretty good.  I would especially recommend a visitor to do this if they are in the St. Andrews area as the Anstruther Fish Bar is just a short drive from St. Andrews, and is consistently voted one of the best, if not the best “Chippy” in the UK.  I suggest you go early though as it gets very busy.  Enjoy!
