The Honeyhill set clover honey is crying out to be thickly spread on top of freshly made bread and butter, or to be mixed with a wee dram of whisky, a dash of lemon and some hot water for the perfect hot toddy. The heather honey, which, like the clover, looks like toffee in colour, is deliciously rich. The bees spend July and August feasting on the purple heather flowers, the image of which dominates the labels on the honey jars. The List has previously rated the heather honey as one of Scotland's finest examples.
