The variety of Scottish produce available still astonishes us. Almost every week we hear of a new company starting out on an amazing adventure to supply innovative and intriguing products.
Wherever possible we use Scottish products in everything we do. Often from small independent producers, we find that by building relationships with these companies, the logistics of delivering to our remote location can be more easily overcome. Some of the larger companies take one look at our postcode and declare that delivery is not possible.
