Happy Burns Night for Tomorrow! Haggis & a fine Single Malt Whiskey

Scotland is famous for many things, Harris Tweed, Tartan, Whiskey, Haggis, Mauchline ware and poet Robert Burns to name but a few. Here are some pics to celebrate Burns night, including one picture of the raw ingredients for the meal: Haggis, usually a sheeps stomach stuffed with barley, herbs & spices, vegetables and more, but in this case a vegetarian one, Neeps, or swede, Tatties or potatoes and some gorgeous greens.

Burns Night is usually happens sometime around the 25th January to celebrate the life and works of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. I shall be partaking of the traditional Burns Night meal of Haggis, Tatties & Neeps on Thursday, as a good friend is cooking for me. It will be an evening of fine traditional eating, while sipping a good Single Malt Scotch Whiskey and reading out a few of Burn's poems in my worst Scottish accent! I shall try to track down some bagpipe music, after all, why not go the whole hog! I shall have to be careful, too many whiskeys may result in me attempting to dance the Highland Fling...


  1. How fun. My husband and I attended a local celebration of Robert Burns a few years back complete with Haggis which I could do without. We also did tastings of many different scotch whiskeys. I think I stopped after one too many knowing I had to walk presentably out of the dining room. Have a great time!

  2. Steady on, Lois! Not the Highland Fling!!!! Have a great time though.

    So pleased you hope to get to our DH event. Will pop a couple of cards in the post to you so you can pass one on to Coral.

    Ages since we spoke - assume all is well with you.

  3. I know what you mean Phyllis, a good Single Malt Whiskey slips down a little too easily!

  4. Hi Sue, all is fine, ticking along quite well, but can't wait for the Spring now...

    By the way, are there any nice Scheurers left?! xx
