Food & Drink

Those exploring the North East 250 may have more than just an appetite for adventure. And the route has plenty to offer!

The north east of Scotland is home to local delicacies, including Cullen Skink and delicious fresh seafood, and to the world’s first breed of a very special herd of cattle – Aberdeen Angus. Mix these with more recent arrivals along the route, such as renowned ice cream makers, artisan cheeses and independent gin makers, and you’ve got a recipe for a tasty trip!

We’ve created a list of must-visit producers, delis, shops, restaurants and cafes to give food and drink lovers the best of what’s on offer in the north east.
