To any Scottish Eggheads

I will be adding a new daughter-in-law to the family this fall. She and her family are Scottish. I thought it would be fun to learn how to cook a full Scottish breakfast and surprise her sometime. 
I need recipes for tattie scones, Lorne sausage, and white pudding. 

I’m perfectly capable of Googling or looking on Pinterest for recipes. I have found several - I’m looking for feedback from folks who have experience with these foods. 

The tattie scones sound easy enough. The “dough” has a lot in common with gnocchi so I should be able to tackle that ok. 

I found a recipe for white pudding from Two Guys and a Cooler that sounds easy enough. https://twoguysandacooler.com/white-pudding/
It seems there are many regional variations though. I’m wondering how it differs across those regions. 

The Lorne sausage has me curious. Most recipes on Pinterest are for a straight up, simple fresh sausage that’s just formed into a loaf pan. But as I read comments I see some folks say that authentic Lorne sausage has a pink color. It makes me think it may have cure #1 added. Anyone have insight about that?

I’m looking forward to learning some news things here. Thanks in advance.

    @lkapigian Does yours have cure #1 or is it a simple fresh sausage?

    Simple fresh ( but you can always use cure )...i think it's in the sausage recipe thread....

    I have a tendency to drink Scotch while cooking/egging. Does that count?

    I had to look up and ask about Lorne myself. From what I see and read Lorne is more often than not beef. That would explain the pink color. It’s basically hamburger meat spiced up from what I see. 
    There are some recipes that use beef and pork, but by a wide margin most appear to be straight up beef. Of all the recipes I see, none mention curing.

    @Stormbringer I was hoping you would check in. Interesting about the white pudding. If that’s the case I need some help sourcing some of the black. I’ve tried (not too hard) to find blood sausage and have not been successful.  
    Do you have any comments on the Lorne sausage?

    My weegie friends came back to me on this thread, specifically the Lorne sausage. This is the sort of thing you're looking to cook (visualisation):

    https://www.scollinsandson.co.uk/products/fresh-meat/beef/beef-sausages/full-lorne-sausage/

    and this is a recipe that one of them has used:

    https://www.barbecue-smoker-recipes.com/scottish-lorne-sausage-recipe.html

    It's sliced and fried like bacon. Apparently some hot debates can ensue on whether it does or does not include pork, my friends are all in the 100% beef camp.

    From talking to some friends of mine and looking through some old books that I have that seems to be the general consensus.

    For the record, you can certainly substitute rectum for beef. Most folks in a blind taste test would prefer it 👍
