Join us for the Scottish story-telling dinner on 30th May. The dinner will take place at Cannonball, a popular and award winning Scottish food restaurant with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and The Royal Mile. Your evening will begin as all the best evenings do; with the warm Scottish welcome, famous the world over. You’ll be made to feel right at home in our dining room, with Edinburgh Castle as our neighbour. To start, you’ll enjoy traditional Scottish prose as our chefs prepare the freshest, finest food from our larder of locally sourced ingredients. You’ll hear all about the very icons that symbolise Scotland and how they came to be part of our character and culture. Saint Andrew, our national patron saint, our beautifully striking saltire flag and our prickly purple thistle, the flower of Scotland. And of course your host for the evening, dressed for the occasion, will tell you all about that curious Scottish skirt – better known as the kilt – the famous dress of the Scottish Highlands. Scotland’s myths, music and food are served at your table! Please choose from one of the menu options below, and also provide any dietary requirements you may have.
