A quartet of Scottish cheeses:
Produced from pasteurised cow’s milk by a local family 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.
Locally produced some 35 miles north of Inverness, this cheddar is ripe, nutty and fruity
Served with honey, walnuts and oatcakes
