The Scottish Arms

A taste of the Highlands in the Central West End. Scottish Arms owner and native Scot Alistair Nisbet has turned out an invitingly dark and welcoming space, perfect for downing pints or attempting to down haggis (which really isn't bad!). More fanciful-sounding items include cock-a-leekie pie (think cream of chicken soup with a baked-over crust), the Ptarmigan (chicken wrapped in bacon) and, well, a fried Mars bar for dessert. Some of the servers actually wear kilts; they're the ones likeliest to know the menu like they were raised on it, and to talk Scotch for hours on end - which makes for a pretty magical restaurant-going experience.
