Scotch Pie

The Scotch pie is an institution in Scotland and has been around for so long that its origins have been lost in the mists of time.

There are reports of a variation of the scotch pie being made in Scotland some 500 years ago.

The Scotch pie is a small, double-crust meat pie filled with minced spiced mutton or other meat.

A convenience food, the scotch pie can easily be eaten one-handed and we like to view it as the Scottish version of a hot sandwich. It is traditional, delicious Scottish fayre.

Across the land every Saturday thousands of pies are consumed at football venues along with the traditional mug of Bovril.

So revered is the humble pie that the Scotch Pie Club was formed in its honour in 1996, and holds the annual World Scotch Pie Championship to judge the best pie in the country.

Scottish Word of the Day!

Puggled – knackered, tired, worn out

Ah’m fair puggled climbing yon stairs

“What dae ye mean – ‘you’re puggled’?” – “What do you mean – ‘you’re done in’?”

Ah’m fair puggled the day.
