The traditional full Scottish breakfast is not so different from the more well-known full English breakfast. It includes such familiar ingredients as bacon, sausage, eggs, tomato, mushrooms and black pudding, but there are certain differences and additions to our breakfast that make it even better!

So, what Scottish things do we include in our traditional Scottish breakfast?

Tattie Scone

A potato scone (or tattie scone!) is made from mashed potato and flour, rolled flat into a circle, fried on a griddle, and cut into quarters.


Haggis is made from a sheep’s heart, lungs and liver, with certain grains and spices, cooked in the lining of the sheep’s stomach. As you may know, haggis is Scotland’s national dish, and we love it so much that we’ll have it with anything. Including breakfast!

Black Pudding

Also part of the traditional full English breakfast, black pudding is a thick slice of blood sausage. This is made from beef suet or pork fat and mixed with blood and oats.

Here at Barcaldine Castle, our full Scottish breakfast includes a tattie scone, haggis and black pudding, along with bacon, pork sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, and eggs (poached, scrambled or fried).
