Haggis heaven in Scotland

17:30 AEST Sat Sep 21 2013
Unless you're a true-blue Scot, you might think Natalie drew the short straw for this story in Getaway's Food Special episode. Well, she did get to go to Burgundy and her next story was across the Channel to Scotland to try its national dish — haggis!

Just reading about her challenge sent chills up Natalie's spine. Here's what she was about to savour. Heart, liver, lungs, tripe, onion, oatmeal, suet, spices and salt, cooked and served in a synthetic skin. In times gone by the ingredients were popped into a sheep's stomach, stitched up and boiled.


Scotland's Isle of Mull.
