One in five people in Britain thinks that haggis, the traditional Scottish dish made from the vital organs of a sheep, is an animal that roams the Highlands, according to a survey on Friday.
Commissioned by the online takeaway food service Just-Eat.co.uk, the survey found that 18 per cent of Britons believe that haggis is a hilltop-dwelling animal. Another 15 per cent said it is a Scottish musical instrument while four per cent thought it was a character from Harry Potter.
The survey questioned 1,623 people across Britain to see how well they were acquainted with traditional Scottish food.
Even 14 per cent of the 781 Scottish people polled said they did not know what haggis was.
