In 1786 Robert Burns famously addressed a poem to the haggis. According to some experts, his intention was to mock the rich French cuisine that was the fashion in Edinburgh at the time. Whatever his motivation, it’s by tucking into what Burns called the ‘Great chieftain o' the pudding-race’ that Scots all around the globe will celebrate Burns Night this weekend if they didn't mark it on his birthday on the 25th.
You can celebrate Burns Night anywhere, of course, but to best capture the spirit you need a candlelit dining room north of the border, with plenty of space to cut the haggis 'wi' ready slicht'. Here are six of the most haggis-friendly properties currently on the market.
