Scottish Tablet and Memories of Childhood

Maybe it’s a sign of getting old when you start reliving the experiences from your youth. The modern world has its attractions yes, but when they never live up to the memories that exist in your head since childhood then is it time to re-examine them or simply move on? I had an experience like this last year, a fondly remembered treat from my early years which I had dismissed as parochial and unhealthy in my 20s reappeared in middle age. Could it ever be as sweet as I remember?

Roads tell stories and the paths, tracks and highways of the highlands are no exception. The history of our country can be told by the seemingly innocuous routes that scramble through our mountains or even the motorways we drive on every day. These are a few of our favourites, stories of anti-government rebellions, of cattle thieves, social control, economic independence, oppression and ultimately freedom.

What better way to kick off the Year than an evening with our national dish and our national poet. No other food can lay such a strong claim as Haggis, Neeps and Tatties to being the soul food of a nation, a meal that binds us together as we celebrate what truly makes us Scottish.
