Nothing but the berry best…

As we’re sure you know by now, Scotland is celebrating its Year of Food & Drink and this month it’s the turn of our summer fruits and berries to take centre stage at the nation’s dinner table.

All of this glorious sunshine (and the occasional thunderstorm and torrential downpour!) means that Scotland’s woodland, hedgerows and fields are now bursting with colour… Strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, tayberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants – the list goes on!

We’ve been getting into the spirit of Wimbledon over the last couple of weeks serving up fresh strawberries and champagne to our guests (cream available on demand, of course). But you don’t need to stop there…

Just a few miles down the road sits Broadslap Fruit Farm. They grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and are renowned for their delicious raspberries in particular.

At Broadslap visitors are free to pick their own fruit or if you’re feeling lazy then you’ll find the full range of fruit and vegetables they offer at the farm shop, ready for you to buy.

Here at the Hydro we use fresh, local fruit and veg from our friends at Arbuckle Farm. Check out the video below to see the pride and passion that goes into the produce we use in the kitchen and behind the bar..
