Scran season 3: Highlights from our Burns Night live

The latest episode of our podcast Scran is now live.

Published: January 29, 2021

Scran is back for a third series with host Rosalind Erskine set to chat to a brand new line-up of guests talking all things Scottish food and drink.

It couldn't be more fitting than to start with one of the most patriotic days of the year - Burns Night.

On the 25 January The Scotsman hosted a Burns Night Live event on its social media channels where our panel where joined by an international audience.

Rosalind was also joined live by Scotland's national chef Gary MacLean, Scotsman Heritage writer Alison Campsie and BenRiach brand ambassador Stewart Buchanan.

The event also featured a guest appearance from Sam Heughan, an exclusive poem read by Alexander McCall Smith and a chat with James MacSween of the world famous MacSween haggis.

We've taken the best bits of the night and turned them into our first episode of season three of Scran.
