Spending time in the beautiful spacious kitchen of Trails End Lodge, our newest Handpicked Lodge, has put us in a real foodie mood this month. There are so many tasty Scottish foods to try during your stay in the Cairngorms – here are our Top 5:
Fancy a pizza night instead? From Trails End Lodge, it’s only a short walk or drive to get a haggis pizza from local take-out or sit-in pizzeria Pizzariach (they do lots of other lovely toppings too!)
Scotland is famous for the fine quality of its fresh fish, from scallops to salmon and gravlax to langoustines. Aviemore is fortunate to have the fantastic Pro Fish fishmonger right here in the village. A family-run business, the Pro Fish shop sells a good selection of fish, shellfish and crustaceans from Scottish fish ports and smoked fish from local smokehouses, and offers free delivery to many local villages too. Their Luxury Meal for Two pack is a perfect way to create a Scottish seafood feast in your Handpicked Lodge this season.
Other villages in the area are visited weekly by fish vans from the nearby Moray coast, such as Sutherlands of Portsoy, so wherever you are staying, you have a chance to try some local fish.
