The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eat and drink

There isn't another part of the UK that's as blessed with bountiful produce as Scotland. The fish and seafood here is second-to-none, and we're not just talking fish and and chips (though that too is pretty good in lots of places), but fabulous scallops, mussels, lobster and more. Scottish beef is justifiably world-famous, and of course there is the game that comes from Scotland's wild regions and country estates – not for nothing is August's 'Glorious 12th' celebrated more in Scotland than anywhere else. All of this is reflected in a wide range of restaurants that vary from basic pubs serving locally-sourced hearty grub to some of the most upscale fine dining establishments in the country, staffed by some of its most talented chefs. Add to this long-standing ethnic influences manifest in the curry houses of Glasgow and the Italian restaurants, delis and gelaterias of Edinburgh, not to mention Scotch whisky and the distilleries that produce it, and you have a destination in which food and drink are very much part of the equation – something that couldn't always be said of Scotland during the days of deep-fried mars bars and chips.
