A Scots butcher has created a serving of haggis made with wagyu beef, French truffle and edible gold. But it comes at a hefty price.

The famous Scots delicacy is traditionally made with lamb heart, lungs and liver, oats, onions and spices but Macsween butchers wanted more exotic ingredients to create the £4000 haggis.

The costly cuisine contains Highland wagyu beef from hand-reared cattle in Perthshire, white summer truffle from France, tellicherry black pepper from India and is decorated with edible 24 carat gold to sprinkle on top.

The 4kg haggis can be made to order and will be presented in a handmade wooden cask.
