But not as you know it. We know haggis is a bit marmite, but if you wanna get your Burns Night on the slay way then head to KERB London tonight and try out the haggis grilled sandwich from Deeney’s.

They may take away our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!

Technically it’s the Duke of Wellington, but who’s gonna be messing with this guy?

4. Deep Fried Mars Bars

Again, you either love ’em or hate ’em, but there is just something about something deep fried…

What’s not to love, eh? Cute dogs will always win.

6. Harry Potter was Filmed in Scotland

Okay, not all of it, but the beaut Scottish landscape was the background for a lot of the scenes in the Harry Potter films, and we like to imagine it’s the Hogwarts Express instead of a delayed Virgin train when we’re travelling up.

Hey, it’s got a rep. South of the border this mystical orange drink is hard to find, but the Scottish isles have got that stuff on tap (not literally).

We may have to google what they are every time (turnips and potatoes, FYI), but we’re totally into this cold weather warmer. How amazing does this BBC Good Food soup look?

Of course, we couldn’t forget our Scottish PD Baes. Again, bae Betty absolutely kills it in her Chloe perspex heeled ankle boots, and we know we’re gonna discover even more slayin’ Scots in 2017.
