Do You Love Your Tatties?


Local charity Soirbheas continues its quest to get the communities of Strathglass and Glen Urquhart to grow more! For the last 5 years, Soirbheas has delivered a Tattie Project, distributes over 2,000 seed potatoes to local schools and nurseries to be grown in the community. The project inspires children, families and the wider community to get growing and to eat more locally grown potatoes which are a cheap, versatile and nutritious food staple.

As part of the project Soirbheas is working with the Glen Urquhart Horticultural Society to hold its annual Tattie Sale Day on Saturday 2rd March from 2pm – 4pm in the Glen Urquhart Hall, Drumnadrochit.

With over 20 varieties of seed potatoes to choose from, along with tips on getting the best yields, advice on suitable varieties and how best to store and cook your tatties.

We would love you to bring along your favourite tattie recipes to share with others as part of our Great Tattie Recipe Swap which include a scrumptious Chocolate Potato Cake, a hearty Potato & Ham Soup and a tasty Potato Crusted Pizza!

This year we will be joined by Abriachan Forest Trust who will be cooking up some tasty tattie treats on an outdoor camp fire!

There will also be an opportunity to have a cuppa and chat with us after you have bought your tatties.
Whether you are new to growing or an old hand at gardening or just love tatties we are confident that this event will inspire you to grow your own tatties.

All proceeds from the sale of the seed potatoes will go towards funding other community growing projects in Glen Urquhart and Strathglass.
