Get Your Sweet Fix in Scotland: The Country's Best Desserts

Travel & Tourism
Scotland may not be known for its culinary prowess, but scratch the surface of the traditional Scottish menu and there are lots of tasty treats just waiting to be discovered. From shortbread and tipsy laird to battered mars bars and raspberries and cream, every palate is catered for. When you choose a cruise, Scotland’s delicious delicacies are bound to be a highlight.

From a very long list, we have chosen a few of the favourites that are definitely worth looking out for; ask any local and they will be sure to agree!


Forget its medicinal-sounding name, this decadent sweet treat is a firm favourite among locals. The melt-in-the-mouth texture and sugary honeyed flavour are the essential elements of tablet, and the delicacy is often made even more appealing by the addition of whisky or vanilla. Not so much a dessert as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, tablet is extremely moreish.


This is one of the simplest, but most delicious desserts out there. A harmonious concoction of lightly whipped cream, honey, toasted oatmeal, whisky and fresh raspberries make this irresistible. If it’s made the day before, the flavours meld together and create a dessert like no other; the perfect combination of crunch, cream and fruity flavour.

Clootie Dumpling

Recipes for this tasty fruit-based cake differ from region to region, but all contain dried fruit, suet, breadcrumbs, flour, spices, sugar and milk. Made in the traditional way, this pudding is first wrapped in cloth and simmered for a couple of hours and then it is dried out in the oven before being served with cream or custard.

Tipsy Laird

Taking the classic trifle to another level, the Scottish Tipsy Laird is a traditional dessert not to be missed. Using Drambuie or whisky instead of sherry is what sets this tasty after-dinner treat apart from the rest. The fruit of choice is always raspberry, as Scotland is famous for growing these delicious sweet berries.

Black Bun

The Scottish love to use dried fruit in their cakes and desserts and the black bun is no exception. Traditionally, this cake given as a gift and eaten on Hogmanay, but today you can enjoy it throughout the year. The classic bun, flavoured with raisins, currants, almonds, citrus, allspice, ginger, cinnamon and black pepper is iced with an unusual pastry topping.

Abernethy Biscuit

A slightly less sweet treat, the Abernethy biscuit is the perfect accompaniment to a morning cup of tea. Invented by a doctor, the biscuit was created to help digestion. It is almost a shortbread but is slightly crunchier and less sugary, which makes it more appealing to those who don’t have such a sweet tooth.

The best way to enjoy these Scottish treats is to book a cruise. Scotland is the ideal destination to discover by boat and as you make your way through the different regions you can tick off all of the delicious sweets, treats and desserts that we have told you about above. Cruise Scotland any time of year and you’ll be sure to fall in love with the foodie scene.
