The Highland show

Tuesday 26th June 2018

On Thursday 21st of June 2018 we set off for the Royal High Land show, we travelled by coach from the school to Ingliston show ground. Upon arrival we were handed maps and shown where the main attractions were located and were shown where we would meet. After that we split up into groups and headed off. My group headed for the food hall as we had heard that one of the best features of the highland show was the food, the food hall was a large shed that was packed with stalls and people buying food. They had everything there from home baking to freshly grown fruit and vegetables. The home baking stand was filled with freshly made cakes, cookies and pastries and smelled beautiful. We then headed off towards the arts and crafts section where they stocked everything from knitted clothing, hand carved ornaments and handmade, bespoke jewellery. Big brands such as Lidal, Aldi, Asda and Marks and Spencer’s were present, all of them giving out free merchandise and samples of produce. A lot of companies provided demonstrations including Quality meat Scotland which showed the public how to cook a steak using locally sourced meat and vegetables. At around 12.30 we stopped and had lunch; we purchased a freshly baked margarita pizza and followed that up with cinnamon and sugar churros, complete with nutella dip. The food was reasonably priced and tasty. For the last few hours we first went to look at the clothing, a main theme running through most clothes was tweed fabric for the reminder of the time we watched the show horses compete and looked at the large amount of livestock they had including sheep, goats and cattle. To finish the day off we ended with a free ice-cream courtesy of the school, and headed back. This was an amazing experience for all of us.
