You have to try, at least once, the Scottish cuisine, especially seafood. When in Scotland, why not take a trip along the coastline and enjoy the scenery and the locally caught seafood? Take lobster for instance. You can find it in shallow waters around Scotland’s coasts or you can easily buy from the anglers in the harbors. On the other hand, maybe you are craving for langoustine or also known as Norway lobster. Langoustine is among the priciest seafood found in Scotland, but it is worth every penny. However, make sure you don’t overcook it. Other exquisite seafood you can buy are crabs. You can find them all around the country, but the velvet crabs are rare on Scotland’s east coast. Seafood is available all-year round in Scotland, although is tastier and succulent from April to November. So, what are you waiting for?
