This is a yearly contest put on by the Scotsman website. It's all explained on the website. Just click on the "I spotted a haggis" button when you spot a haggis on one of the webcams. You do have to register to play and get prizes.

Just a reminder:

It's nearly haggis hunting time again!. The Hunt begins on 30 November at 12 noon GMT.
I'll keep everyone updated as we get closer.

Did you know
Haggis is also used in a sport called haggis hurling. The present Guiness World Record for Haggis Hurling has been held by Alan Pettigrew for over 22 years. He threw a 1.5 lb Haggis an astonishing 180 feet, 10 inches on the island of Inchmurrin, Loch Lomond, in August 1984.

Haggis juggling takes place at the Scottish Juggling Convention each year, with competitors competing for how long they can juggle three, four, or five large haggis.

Not a big fan of eating haggis so am very happy that they have found other uses for it. biggrin.gif

Been doing the hunt for a few years now. It is a lot of fun and is great for killing time.

Only a few more days to go!

I'm new to this. Would someone be kind enough to explain what this is all about?
