The Perthshire Breakfast scheme is to promote the use of locally sourced and seasonal produce from Perthshire. I am very fortunate to have on our doorstep an unbeatable natural larder and many local producers. A Perthshire Breakfast makes the most of this bounty.
There is a substantial cold buffet table where you can help yourself to a selection of items:
A wide range of cereals including homemade granola
Homemade fruit compotes, poached prunes/apricots and in season raspberries and strawberries. Blairgowrie is 'The Berry Capital of Scotland'
Hot from the kitchen:
A bowl of porridge with perhaps sugar and cream and a nip of Edradour whisky.
Choose your own combination of:
Pan fried Apple
Eggs: Fried, Scrambled, Poached or Boiled (from my own hens)
The Classic: 1 or 2 Scottish breakfast rolls filled with bacon and topped with a fried egg.
We have other breakfast choices depending what is available or in season. All served with toast, Oatcakes and of course Coffee, Scottish Breakfast Tea, Fruit Infusions or Hot Chocolate. Homemade Marmalade and Jam and local honey and other sauces all available.
