A Wee Dram?...

Magnum Wine Shop
Burns Night Whisky Tasting Night
Friday 31 January 2020
 
And if you fancy toasting Robert Burns' birthday with just a drop of a damn good malt, then Magnum Wine in Wood Street, Old Town, is definitely the place to visit - especially on a tasting night!
 
Sarah there knows her scotch better than anyone, and with over 70 to choose from it's quite simply whisky heaven.
 
Where to hire a kilt in Swindon...
 
Kilt Swindon
And finally.... for those with the legs for it, here's the best place to hire a kilt for Burns Night. Jocks away!
 
 
And where to buy a proper haggis....
 
They say a haggis isn't a proper haggis unless it's made in Scotland using lamb, beef, oatmeal, onions and special seasoning. All wrapped in natural casing and washed down with a wee dram!
 
Crump Butchers in Wootton Bassett source theirs from Scotland and we can testify that they're mighty tasty!
