If you thought that Haggis was just a Scottish mealy pudding, served up with neeps ‘n tatties at Burns Suppers…well, folks, meet Haggis Scoticus!
Here he is in all his hairy glory, and fresh from running wild in the Highland glens. Not too many people have seen the real thing.
I’m only letting you into this closely-guarded secret because tonight (January 25th) is Burns Night – and people the world over will be gathering to celebrate the Bard’s 254th birthday.
As far as I know, no-one has ever been able to capture this elusive creature – except that is, for the boffins at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
They are so proud of their achievement that they have put this fine specimen on show.
The accompanying notice explains all…
Enjoy those Burns Suppers.
