Highland CattleThere are many opportunities to taste the Highland cuisine and local produce within Moidart, Ardnamurchan and the Rough Bounds.  The traditional Highland cuisine was based on the rich earthy flavours of game meats (venison, wild boar and grouse), wild mushrooms, aromatic herbs and berries, and was supplemented by dishes of beef, goat, lamb and mutton.  These dishes were complimented by the clean, delicate flavours and textures of fresh fish and shellfish, most notably salmon, trout, haddock and herring.  These fish were also served cured, salted, pickled or smoked according to choice and circumstance, the latter imparting a deep, rich smoky flavour to the fish.  Mussels and oysters were also an important part of the diet.  >> More on Food and Crafts...
