Britons believe the hills are alive with haggis
LONDON (Reuters) - One in five people in Britain thinks that haggis, the traditional Scottish dish made from the lung, liver and heart 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 percent of Britons believe that haggis is a hilltop-dwelling animal.
Another 15 percent said it is a Scottish musical instrument while 4 percent admitted to thinking 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 percent of the 781 Scottish people polled said they did not know what haggis was.
