Forfar, the county town of Angus, is the home of Scotland’s answer to the Cornish pasty: the famous Forfar bridie. A shortcrust pastry turnover filled with cooked minced beef, onion and gravy, it was invented in Forfar in the early 19th century. If you fancy trying one, head for James McLaren & Son, a family bakery bang in the centre of Forfar, which has been selling tasty, home-baked bridies since 1893.
