About this tour

Scotland’s heritage, stories, food and music all combine for a captivating evening that indulges the best of Scottish traditions.

Your evening will begin as all the best evenings do; with the warm Scottish welcome, famous the world over. You’ll be made to feel right at home in our dining room, with Edinburgh Castle as our neighbour. To start, you’ll enjoy traditional Scottish prose as our chefs prepare the freshest, finest food from our larder of locally sourced ingredients.

You’ll hear all about the very icons that symbolise Scotland and how they came to be part of our character and culture. Saint Andrew, our national patron saint, our beautifully striking saltire flag and our prickly purple thistle, the flower of Scotland. And of course your host for the evening, dressed for the occasion, will tell you all about that curious Scottish skirt - better known as the kilt – the famous dress of the Scottish Highlands.

Scotland’s myths, music and food are served at your table

We believe the very best evenings are spent in the company of friends and you’ll have time to make new ones whilst eating the finest of Scottish fayre. Edinburgh Haggis, Scottish Beef, seasonal vegetables and creamy traditional Cranachan will be enjoyed amongst the tales of Scotland.

No Scottish evening is complete without whisky of course so we’ll serve you up a ‘wee dram’ of our national drink, our ‘water of life’. And to ensure you can raise a glass like a true Scot we’ll teach you a Scot’s toast as well as a few phrases. By the end of the night you’ll feel like a local. 

So huddle in, lend us your ear and join us for an exceptional night or as we say in Scotland - ‘Coorie in’, ‘lend us yir lug’ and enjoy a ‘rare’ night in.
