Scotland's Larder

Availability & Booking

Scotland has wonderful produce in the way of meat, game, fruit and vegetables.  The local butchers sell local meat and game and Scottish produce can be found in local supermarkets in season.

Food Shopping

The Country Store, Kinloch Rannoch - The village general store. You can order groceries, fruit and veg, meat, papers etc. for your arrival. You can also buy delicacies made by Rannoch Smokery.

Macdonald Brothers Butchers, Pitlochry - Good traditional butchers in Pitlochry and Aberfeldy. Order in advance and collect on your way through Pitlochry or Aberfeldy.

House of Bruar - This shop has a fantastic food hall (locally known as the 'Harrods of the North'!, and an excellent butchers shop, too.

Co-op supermarkets - in Pitlochry and Aberfeldy - small compared to city supermarkets but good choice of foods including a gluten free range and fair trade foods.

Asda and Tesco do deliver to Rannoch but we try to encourage visitors to support the local shop, The Country Store.  It is a question of "Use it or Lose it" in a remote area.

The cottage faces Schiehallion and is great if you like seeing a mountain out of the front window....

Food from Perthshire

Perthshire produces some of the best food in Scotland.  And some good foraging too.  But make sure you know what you are doing if picking fungi.

Local foods include:

Rannoch Smokery originated in Rannoch but the delicacies are now produced elsewhere.  However, they are the same quality and are for sale in the Country Store.

Dunkeld Smoked Salmon - The specialist salmon smokers.  Pop into the smokehouse if you are in Dunkeld. 

In summer the Blairgowrie berries are plentiful and delicious and can be bought in most supermarkets.

Local meat and game is readily available in the butchers in Dunkeld, Aberfeldy and Pitlochry. 

Fresh bread is baked and sold at the Watermill in Blair Atholl from their own flour.  They even run courses in baking. 

In Stanley, near Perth, there is a dairy where they make their own scrummy ice cream.  There is a cafe there too: Stewart Tower Dairy.  Signposted from the A9.

Dunkeld has an amazing artisan bakery, with a small coffee shop, Aran Bakery  Well worth a visit if you passing.
