In the run up to Burns night, haggis makers Macsween have published a clip of a haggis gamekeeper on the “hunt” for “one of nature’s more secretive and private creatures.”
Like Nessie or Bigfoot, the very existence of the haggis has been a contentious subject for decades.
“With global warming we’re increasingly seeing the rise of the urban haggis,” said Archie. “They say in Leith you’re never more than ten feet away from one.”
A haggis is variously described as “an elusive and furry wee nocturnal creature with one leg longer than the other, so it can run fast round hills” or simply a savoury pudding that goes particularly well with a bit of mashed turnip and potatoes.
Burns night is celebrated on January 25, which falls on a Wednesday this year.
