    Inverness Highland Games, July 2009

    I have written plenty of tips about kilts, music, food, dialect, Nessie, history, flora & fauna and anything you ever wanted to know about Scottish culture.

    --> Have a look at the Local Customs on my SCOTLAND PAGE:

    I even have the answer to the most asked question of them all: what does a Scotsman wear under his kilt?

    Head on over to my main Scotland page to find out! :-)

    Should you be a man desiring...

    Should you be a man desiring to wear a skirt, then you'll definately feel at home in Scotland. As long as you don't mind wearing plaid, that is. All kidding aside, something that most people don't know about is a local Pipe band that plays in Inverness at the downtown courtyard every Tuesday evening at (I believe) seven pm. I did not see a mention of it in any of the tourist brochures and while it was fairly crowded, it was not overrun with people like a normal 'tourist event' would have been.

    I must thank the proprietor of our bed and breakfast for letting us know about the event. :-)

    Haggis

    by Airpunk Written Aug 12, 2012
    The Good Food Shop

    If you are a non-vegetarian and are on a visit to Scotland, you may want to try haggis. That's the Scottish National Dish, containing mainly sheep's entrails which is not an appetizing idea. Sometimes, you need to be brave to order Haggis at a restaurant, therefore I suggest to try out first if you like the taste at all. There are several take away products containing haggis which are not expensive - so you don't need to waste money on somethin you could potentially dislike. "The good food shop", a baker chain in the Eastgate Shopping Centre, offers haggis rolls for little money which I really liked.
    In short: Try the roll first. And if you liked it, go for the real thing.

    The Black Isle Show

    Horse Display at the Black Isle Show, Inverness

    The Black Isle is situated on the opposite side of the Moray Firth and can be reached by a bridge. When we visited Inverness in August 1998 the Black Isle Show took place with exhibitions of farm animals in all shapes and forms. I never knew that sheep came in so many variations. There were also sheep dog trials and a dog show where proud owners paraded their pets.

    I really don't know if it is a local custom or not to find pipers in the streets, but it's very nice.
