Mary Berry’s Highland Christmas for BBC One and BBC iPlayer will see her cooking up some indulgent dishes that can be enjoyed at any time over the festive season including a spectacular Cranachan wreath.

But that’s not all, this Christmas holds a profound significance for Mary as she is celebrating it in Scotland, her mother’s homeland. Amidst the wealth of cultural treasures, Mary will take moments to reflect on her heritage, sharing captivating stories about her Scottish roots. She won’t be alone on this enchanting journey; she will be joined by special guests who will make this Christmas an unforgettable experience.

Mary Berry says: “Christmas in Scotland is the biggest treat, my mother and her family were Scottish so it is a special place for me. The festive holidays are all about sharing special times with friends and family and so what better way than cooking some of my favourite dishes with a traditional Scottish twist. Joined by special guests and surrounded by beautiful scenery, these are recipes which can be used all over the festive season and I can’t wait to share Mary Berry’s Highland Christmas with BBC One viewers.”
