Food guru Alex Murray says:
"I order my stuff from Cameron's Scottish Market, in Brick, N.J. We found it when Beth was with the FeeBees and we lived in "Noo Joisey". The baker/butcher is a Paisley "Buddy".
Outside of Summer months, if you order by Tuesday, standard shipping, it will get here on Thursday. Just in time for a Scottish Saturday breakfast- Tattie Scones, Lorne Sausage, Black pudding and fried eggs. A true heart attack on a plate and all smothered in HP sauce too. Not forgetting to wash it down with a strong cup of Ty-Phoo or PG tips! I also highly recommend the Scottish Breakfast Pies, Haggis Puffs & Steak & Ale Pies too! I've never had a complaint about anything I've bought from them it's all Grrrrrrrrreat!" [Cameron's Scottish Market - 284 Brick Blvd, Brick Township, NJ 08723 - www.cameronsscottishfoods.com/]

Another one Alex recommends:

Stewart's Scottish Market was originally established in 1931, in Kearny New Jersey. All of our products are made fresh on the premises, in the same traditional way for the last 86 years.

Mail orders can not sit in transit over the weekend due to the perishable nature of the items.

When Beth's at work in Virginia and I go down, we shop at the "Best of British" store. https://www.bestofbritishva.com It's not limited to Scottish stuff and they have a downloadable shopping list to peruse at your leisure.
They accept orders over $50.00 via phone and email for shipping | Prices subject to change | Some items my be temporarily out of stock or discontinued by wholesalers

CELTIC RUSH
 
Founded by Gordon Schaeffer, this grand group of musicians in Northeast Ohio (Akron, Canton & Cleveland areas) plays the lilting Celtic Music that finds a home in any of the seven Celtic Nations.  They have performed at our Beltane Festival and at our St. Andrews Dinner.  They love performing for the public and also at private events. Some of the members offer lessons, too. You will love hearing them as much as they enjoy performing.
