Vegetarian Travel Notes:


VegDining's Directory of Restaurants in Scotland

IVU Global Directory - UK

World Vegetarian Congress 2002 - Edinburgh

Scottish Vegetarian Assocation

Scottish Tourist Board

The traditional Scottish breakfast is easily vegan-ized. Since breakfast was included with lodging, when we booked a hotel or B & B we asked if they could accommodate a vegan diet; everyone was very obliging. Our only special request was soya [soy] milk.

Most places were familiar with the restrictions of a vegan diet. When those that weren't asked what we wanted, we knew we could ask for fruit, cereal, porridge, beans, tomatoes, and mushrooms without inconveniencing them. Sometimes we were pleasantly surprised when they served veggie sausages or tattie scones (not quite a potato pancake or a mashed potato fritter but not a traditional scone either).

In Edinburgh, The Greenhouse Vegan & Vegetarian Guest House is highly recommended. Not only are the rooms beautifully renovated, all bath products are cruelty-free and there are vegetarian magazines, snacks, bottled water, fruit and flowers in the rooms. The owner is knowledgeable of restaurants in Edinburgh and Glasgow and his recommendations were accurate. The comprehensive breakfast menu included tempeh rashers, scrambled tofu, and pate.

For lunch and dinner we never had any problem finding a vegan meal. Even in small towns in the Orkney Islands, a pub meal could consist of a vegetable fritter and chips, haggis with mustard sauce or freshly prepared risotto. Add to that a good selection of Indian, Italian, Chinese and Thai restaurants, and you will have no problems dining in Scotland.
