A Little Winter Fun

Each year, Scotsman.com runs a contest called the Haggis Hunt. The idea is simple. Go to the haggishunt website and watch the ten webcams. Most  of them are located in various parts of Scotland, but there's one in Times Square in New York. When you spot a haggis - either a golden haggis like the one pictured above, or a plain brown one - click on the "I saw a haggis" button and send your sighting to the Chief Ghillie, Farquhar Farquharson.

What can you win? A stay in a luxury hotel, a spa treatment, a round of golf (all in Scotland), a Harris tweed jacket, boxes of crisps, Scotsman calendars, and much more.

While you're waiting to see a haggis, be sure to check out the Haggisclopedia of interesting facts about hagii. Nothing kinky, just silly.

The contest ends on Burns' night, so have fun while you can.

I had a look and spotted two.

Have you ever tired Haggis Hermione?

I think I'd prefer the runners up prizes, spa, game of golf or a Harris tweed. Much better than a trip to a crisp factory :)

Love,
Ronnie

Yes, I have had haggis. It's rather like spicy meatloaf.

I agree, a trip to the crisp factory is kind of odd! I won a calendar one year. I think that's what they give all the out of country winners.

Hugs,
Hermione
