When she took charge of her butchers shop in Scone, Ann Davidson was the first woman in Scotland to do so. She now has a second branch in Cupar Angus to her name, as well as two major Scottish Federation of Meat Trader accolades for her steak pies – national champion in 2009, and a gold award in 2013. Davidson learnt the trade from her father, working in his Glasgow shop while she was still at school, and the bakery is now a major part of her business, with everything made on site in Scone. A member of the Scotch Butchers Club, all the beef, lamb and pork she sells is from Scotland – some from her family’s own farm – and game can be ordered in if you phone either shop. A mobile van tours the region, visiting Aberfeldy, Dunkeld, Blairgowrie and Kinross on its way, and if you call in advance to place orders, collection from the van is free.
