Glasgow-based American Madeline Miller has been unofficially working on The Wee Food Tour since relocating to Glasgow in 2004. What started as a personal mission to find the best traditional Scottish food in the city soon became a series of impromptu, outside-the-guidebooks tours for visiting family and friends.
Ms. Miller combines a local’s expertise with a tourist’s fresh perspective: In other words, she knows the best places to try all those strange-sounding traditional dishes. As the tour winds through the Merchant City, East End, and West End, you’ll taste the freshest haggis, smokiest haddock, tangiest hotch potch, and sweetest tipsy laird Glasgow has to offer. At the same time, you’ll feast your eyes on some of Glasgow’s most charming neighbourhoods and shops—be sure to stop in after the tour!
The Wee Food Tour is proud to promote local small and family-run businesses. The tour is ideal for hen and stag parties, team-building afternoons, and visiting foodies of all stripes.
Colin Irons was born and raised in Dundee on the east coast but has been a citizen of Glasgow since 1984 when he came to study Archaeology at the University of Glasgow.
It was a subsequent course in Music and Performance that led him into a career in the performing arts when he was recruited by much loved Glasgow theatre company, Mischief La Bas. The multi faceted nature of the company saw him expand skills in acting, dancing, singing, trapeze, joinery, comedy, artwork, puppetry and music.
Having worked in Street Theatre around the world and with his appetite for local history, he makes an ideal addition to the team, now as a tour guide on the Wee Food Tour.
