This traditional family-owned butcher shop is famous for its sausages and haggis. All their meat is sourced from within Angus, and they dry-cure their own bacon. They can boast 38 different sausage recipes, up to 16 of which will be in the counter every day, with the likes of pork, pear and black pudding alongside the more conventional. They bake their own fresh bread and pastries at their general store and bakery at 19 North Street, and you can also buy asparagus and fresh berries in season, local eggs, butter, oatcakes and honey. Barbecue and weekend special boxes, breakfast packs for self-catering cottages, luxury hampers and even a catered barbecue with a professional chef are all on offer.
