The people, the Highlands and the food was great.

I'm of Scotch/Irish descent so I claim the Scots as my people.
Hi Toots,
I hate to shatter you illusions but Banoffee Pie is not Scottish. Place a can of condensed milk in a pan, cover with water and boil, covered always with water for 3+ hours and it turns into the caramel. Cool and place in a pre-baked pastry case and top with bananas (since when were those indigenious to Scotland) etc.

As to a Ginger Tam made from ginger, honey and whiskey - sorry but in Scotland we spell the word differently. It is WHISKY - without an "E".

Scottish ingredients and food are/is some of the best in the world. Our fish, game, beef, lamb, tatties - other vegetbles like broccoli, and other ingredients are unparalled and we have no need to rely on "Deep Fried Mars Bars" to be a food destination!

All the best,
Archiduc

I went to Scotland once in 1975... I returned to US in 1980. At that point I had lived there more than 1/5th of my life.
Cheerio just now,

Yep, my mom is Scottish. She grew up in a small town called Montrose. It's on the east coast, inbetween Aberdeen and Dundee.
I've been to Scotland to visit family a few times and I just love it there. I look forward to taking my kids when they get a little older.

Corazon,

I lived in Montrose, Brechin, Fern and Edzell. Three of my four kids were born in Scotland: two in Montrose, one in Dundee.

Ciao,

Ciao,
Wow! What a coincidence! Yep, I've visited all those towns a number of times as well. Montrose is one of my favorite places in the world. It holds such wonderful memories for me and I still have quite a bit of family there.

How long did you live in Scotland Steve?
