Established in 1890, it would be a mere five years later that the family-run Buchanan butcher would devise their own special Lorne sausage recipe, a secret which has stayed with them ever since. Although they won’t say exactly what’s in it, they say their own brand of square sausage is more spicy than most, which has caught the palate not only of their local customers, but of those Lanarkshire ex-pats who can’t resist tasting it once more when they’re back in the area. They also sell cuts of beef, lamb and pork as well as steak pies and sausage rolls, all using meat from farms in Lanarkshire and Ayrshire, and supply to the catering trade.
- Open since: 1890
