A quartet of Scottish cheeses:
Produced from pasteurised cow’s milk by a local family here in the Highlands. This cheese is a milder form of Stilton with a tangy taste coming from the blue veins.
This cheese was first introduced by the Vikings in the 8th century. Crowdie has a creamy taste and is rolled in oatmeal and cracked black pepper to give it crunch and heat.
Great with a Highland malt.
Underneath its bloomy rind, the texture is smooth and silky, while the flavours are sweet, meaty and creamy.
Produced from pasteurised cows milk. Mellow and creamy, with a sweet nutty flavour
Served with honey, walnuts and oatcakes
