About this tour

The ingredients of the haggis. The secret to the water of life. And the precise definition of a ‘tappit hen’. Some Scottish traditions can be a little confusing – even to the Scots. Fear not: Mistress Meg Dods will be your guide for the evening.

Legendary landlady of the Cleikum Inn, Meg hosted the Cleikum Club – renowned for fostering the arts during the Scottish Enlightenment.

Now she’s ready to regale you with the very real tales of our nation’s customs and characters – presented in full costume by one of our fully trained and accredited performers.

A lady through and through, Meg was immortalised in Sir Walter Scott’s novel, St Ronan’s Well. A woman of uncertain age, Meg was of modest origin, warm-hearted and given to speaking her mind. She also had a rightly-won reputation for hospitality and homespun yarns.
