First time eating haggis and it was good. Definitely a milder way to experience Scotland's famous dish.

Stayed at Jurry's Inn, found this little eatery around the corner and gave it a try. Best try ever, the potatoes were nice and filling. The owner was very friendly and the family had a nice chat with him, about many things including football.
