Stockbridge is charming, with a chance to explore Scotland’s finest cheeses, chocolate and seafood. Broughton is more eclectic and Bohemian, with whisky sampling and amazing marshmallow tasting and a non-scary introduction to haggis
You’ll visit between five and six different food and drink establishments. Food portions are starter size, but we would say hold off having breakfast! Alcohol (or soft drinks) and fine Scottish tap water is included.
