• What is haggis? The dish is traditionally made by grinding sheep’s innards (which can be the heart, liver and lungs) with oatmeal, onion and seasonings that are cooked inside either a sheep’s stomach or a sausage casing. It’s considered the national dish of Scotland because of Robert Burns’ poem “Address to a Haggis.”

Mae Wilson was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, but moved to the states after meeting her American husband. The Pacific Northwest, with its lush greenery, rain and friendly people is similar to Scotland, she said.
“If you can’t live in Scotland, this is the next best thing,” Wilson said. “This part of the country, I like it.”
The views of the Columbia River are reminiscent of the River Clyde, which runs through Glasgow.
