This is a Scottish evening featuring singers, dancers and the Ceremony of the Haggis. I don't think I would have tasted it had I known what it was but they made such a big deal about it when they presented it, that I did. The...More

Tonight, we went on an optional Scottish evening with Highland dancers, bagpipers, and the Ceremony of the Haggis. Haggis is a pork sausage mixed into cereal and spices cooked in the empty cleared sheep’s stomach. The dinner was great (including the haggis) and the entertainment...More

I agree Haggis is somewhat exotic but I suspect no worse than a lot of sausages in terms of what its ingredients are and it is delicious!!

The show is a little too polished and reminded me more of a cruise boat show than an authentic experience. The food and wine were good and the greeter and piper were friendly.

This was part of our tour and a great experience. Banquet style dinner lots of fun. Food was average But song and dance was excellent. The only better entertainment in Edinburgh would be the Military Tattoo. Wonderful Cultural experience!

Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
