Thank goodness Drossie posted your quote about this vegan hotel, interrobang?!, because amongst all of this scone/PB & chocolate/biscuit & cookie "fighting," I missed that you wrote that!

Carry on. You know, for the Scots. And freedom.

Oh! I forgot to mention! There is a vegan hotel in Glasgow. Or at least one that specifically caters to vegans. But I forget its name. I will find out. It's right near Charing Cross that Steffers posted about. I will investigate for you.


I would love to know more about this for my own reference, too; it looks like the Greenhouse in Edinburgh has closed before I got a chance to visit, so it'd be great to stay in a similar place in Glasgow one day. All I found from a search is Adelaide's, but from their own description they don't seem to fit the bill.


Argyll Hotel- it's not fully vegan, but it's happy to fully cater to vegans who stay there.

Okay, bisque. This thing is ON.

It's gross! Chocolate and coffee is sublime, however. Only people who say scown would like PB and chocolate.

See, that's what I'm afraid of. I just need to fit in as easily as possible here. I'm already "that vegan"... now you want me to go around saying weird European words/pronouncing things "properly?" I'm going to ask my Irish-born, has lived here for 17 years friend how she pronounces "scone" today.

HA! The "we'll set aboot ye" chap they showed after talking about anti-terrorist measures at Scottish Airports is famous in Scotland for tackling a terrorist to the ground who attacked Glasgow International Airport and kicking him in the head. It's worth mentioning that said terrorist was engulfed in flames at the time. National hero - and deservedly so.

Yes! And he was also on Big Fat Quiz of The Year, too! (I think?)

I pronounce it s-cone when in the US, s-cone when in England, s-con when in Scotland and I like them plain, with currants, with cranberry and cornmeal, with chocolate chips and with nuts.
Round or triangle I don't care
I wish scones were everywhere.
They are tasty they are sweet
Scones with or without an e can't be beat.

Dayumn. I just joined the forum BECAUSE OF THIS AMAZING THREAD. :D Hello!

I'm an ex-pat American-itarian (but from Boston so we're pretty much Eurotrash!) living in Edinburgh - "EASTSIDE!" - and married to a vegan Glaswegian. I'm trying to cover all the bases here. And after 15 years I say 'SKOHN' and roll my eyes at the frosted concoctions at Au Bon Pain in Boston... brainwashing working then!

ps - I can't say strongly enough, HAVE THE VEGAN HAGGIS AT 78. :D Actually, just go there in general and wallow in its wonderful beer and food (and did I mention beer), but the haggis dinner is super noms. I keep trying to order other things and utterly failing... plus Mother India's Cafe is fab Indian, order lots of small plates of tasty goodness... look, just enjoy yourself cos being a vegan in the central belt is full of WIN :D
