Beneath all the supposed modern enthusiasm for calorie-controlled diets, fruit and vegetables (etc) the “real Scot” lurks persistently in many or even most of us.
And at Saturday’s Eaglesham Fair this ancestral carnivorous trend will be both celebrated and put to the ultimate test ... with a pie-eating contest, live on stage.
The challenge is being held in association with G R Brown Butchers, and features that company’s very popular award-winning pies.
It’s just one colourful highlight of a day packed with events and entertainment, and while it’s not all about food - far from it - there’s a bake-off contest to be won as well.
You’ll find updated information on the Fair at Eaglesham Fair’s Facebook page.
