>Pie Society

>Inspired by The Great Steak Pie Hunt, I felt I had to share my recent pie experience up in Scotland. Our lad and me had just conquered all of Ben-Y-Vrackie’s 2759 mist-shrouded feet. The route took us behind Pitlochry’s Moulin Inn, and we stopped for a pie and a pint. And what a pie. Just look at this. It’s a phrase I’ve used before, but eating it was like digging your way out of a meat avalanche. The chips were average, but in company like that who cares?

The beer wasn’t bad, either – made in the pub’s own microbrewery in the lane behind. I must admit, if you’re in Pitlochry you’ll be wanting for decent pubs. There was a nasty karaoke place that looked as if it had been transplanted from Blackpool, a soulless town centre pub full of dour-looking tourists and a place that may or may not have been a hotel bar. The Moulin was the best by a mile. Cheers.

    >Aaaaargh! Salad ‘garnish’…puff pastry…bleargh! But Hell’s Teeth: what a dish of meat that is!!!! Marvellous – the beer looks good too (and your photos are better than mine, but then you ARE a photographer…I’m just a snapper!).Isn’t the Pie just a great way to eat?

  2. >Part of that garnish was cold neeps. I gave it the body swerve.

    >Is that pastry on a top, or a roll at a jaunty angle?Pitlochry is part of the great Scottish tourist swindle. It’s a rotten, overpriced hole of a place. No idea why tourists are shepherded through it all the time. Glad you found something good there though!

  4. >Anne, that is indeed pastry. Very difficult to eat, the ‘puff’ variety when in tandem with a pie.I quite liked Pitlochry , but I know what you mean – there were about 150 places to buy a beige fleece but not a single bakers shop that we could find.
