Scotland’s most iconic national dish is made of sheep’s pluck (liver, lungs, and heart) minced with spices, salt, oatmeal, suet and onion inside a lining of the animal’s stomach. Haggis may not be the prettiest of foods, but definitely makes up for it with its flavoursome taste. It’s best tried the traditional way, alongside neeps and tatties.
