Scotland, with its lush land and award-winning beasts, is a prime spot for high quality meats. Whether sourcing the best steak in town or on a mission to shop local, Edinburgh has you covered, and then some. Read our round-up and enjoy a taste of the best butchers in Scotland’s capital.
A tried and true local landmark, Saunderson’s family butcher has been going strong since 1958. Situated near the King’s Theatre at Tollcross, Saunderson’s has that family feel the moment you walk in. Those looking for farm to table food are in for a treat — you know the exact roots of the meat. The Scotch beef, which always come from young heifers, is sourced from Harrison & Hetherington Auction Mart in Newton St Boswells, whereas Tom Wilkinson’s Woodfoot farm, also in the Borders, provides the free-range pigs. The Scotch lamb is just as good as the other meats too.
