Highland butcher’s 3,000 mile trip to supply St Andrew’s banquet in Monaco

Lochalsh Butcher supplied haggis, among other meats, to the feast.

A butcher from the Highlands has travelled 3,000 miles to deliver a batch of Scottish treats to help royal diners in Monaco celebrate St Andrew’s Day.

Lochalsh Butchers in Kyle packed a van full of their finest selection of meats and drove to Monte Carlo where a banquet was being held to mark Scotland’s national day.

The £400-a-head feast was attended by Monaco’s ruling monarch Prince Albert and featured cuts of beef, lamb, scallops, and of course haggis from the Highland retailer.

The six-day trip was made by butcher George MacRae, who was more accustomed to making shorter deliveries to Lochalsh or the Western Isles, and came about as a result of a recommendation from the banquet’s chef.

Michael Smith, who normally cooks at Skye’s Three Chimneys Restaurant, requested the butcher supply the meal at Monte Carlo’s Hotel Hermitage.

The event hoped to raise £40,000 for Prince Albert’s charity foundation.
