Because corn will not grow in the Scottish climate they grow rapeseed and use the oil extracted from its seed. As you drive around Scotland the landscape is dotted with gorgeous fields of bright yellow Rape. Gorgeous! Katrina said on hot days as you pass a field the smell is overwhelming and a little sickening. We never had a day hot enough to experience this while I was there. But I so enjoyed the lovely spots of yellow everywhere as we drove all over!
