Hall’s reclaims World Record title for haggis

Haggis

Frightening to think what this haggis would have looked like if it been met in the wild, being the size of a small elephant:

The record for the world’s largest haggis has been broken by a massive 1.01 ton pudding.

The haggis was made and cooked at Hall’s in North Berwick before being put on the back of a lorry and taken to the Royal Highland Show for the all-important weigh-in on Thursday.

It tipped the scales at 1.01 ton, or 2227lbs – a whopping 993lbs heavier than the previous record.

Measuring more than 2.5m long, 1m wide and a metre high, the recipe included 750lbs of oats and almost 90lbs of onions.

The attempt was overseen by Mark McKinley from Guinness World Record, who confirmed it had made it into the record book.

After the weigh-in, Cameron Hill, 15, from Kilmarnock performed the address to the haggis before it was dished out.

The haggis, which took 25 and a half hours to cook, will be sold in individual portions to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and a selection of children’s charities.
