Mac & Wild, the Scottish game and seafood concept, has announced the launch of its third restaurant at the Falls of Shin in Scotland, opening late June 2018.
Founders Andy Waugh and Calum Mackinnon are taking over the site at the Falls of Shin visitor centre.
The venture sees Mac & Wild venture back to roots in the Scottish Highlands, where the concept originated, and will continue showcase the best of Scottish produce and suppliers, including Waugh’s family butchery business.
It will feature a 50-cover restaurant and a pavilion with 60 seats outside.
Throughout the year, Mac & Wild will host foraging walks and talks, haggis-making masterclasses, whisky masterclasses and meet the maker and producer masterclasses.
Later in the year Mac & Wild plan to introduce additional workshops such as sheep shearing sessions and curing classes.
The menu will feature signature dishes such the veni-moo burger, Haggis pops, venison Sunday roasts and deep-fried mars bar sundae.
Waugh said: “Falls of Shin is an incredibly exciting project for us at Mac & Wild and offers us the opportunity to work even more closely with our producers and the ingredients growing on the doorstep. At Falls of Shin the seasons will dictate what is available to us at the restaurant and we will continually pickle, ferment, dehydrate and cure ingredients to make the most of the best produce while it is in season.”
