Let’s face it, any occasion to break out a wee dram is fine with us, scottish or not. And you know, a well-prepared haggis isn’t so bad either.
So if you’re looking for an opportunity to drink a little Scotch and celebrate Scotland’s iconic poet, here are some places to head.
Full disclosure: not all of these involve food and scotch, but there’s some fine music and poetry to be enjoyed as well.
