Appetite Top Tips for Burns Night in Edinburgh
January is drawing to a close, and as if that was not cause enough for celebration, in Scotland that means Burns! Oh Rab, our humble bard. We scrawled your sonnets in our Valentines cards, recite your poetry at our Weddings and sing your words to bring in each New Year.
So dust off your kilt and clear your throat – here comes the haggis.
For Burns the scholar: Burns for Beginners at the castle. If you fancy buffing up on the bard this light-hearted intro will tell you everything you need to know about his work in the dramatic setting of Edinburgh castle.
For Burns the whisky fan: Rib-Aye! opened in Leith last year and is welcoming its first Burns Night with full vigor. A four course meal with matched whisky…don’t mind if we do!
For Burns the joker: The Stand offer something a little different for Burns fans. Have your haggis at home and head down to Edinburgh’s top comedy club for a belly full of laughs from four of Scotland’s top comics.
For Burns the socialite: Paradise Palms not only boast a vegan haggis on their menu but will be throwing a “bawdy evening of hurly – burly” a sentence to entice even the most cynical of Scots.
For Burns the host: DIY your evening with close friends, good food and a bottle of wine. Add a seasonal twist to traditional Cranachan and replace raspberries with Scottish rhubarb – delicious!
