Hot potato: Kent man trav­els to Scot­land for tat­tie treat

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

A potato lover has made a 1,000-mile round trip to Scot­land in or­der to dig up his own sup­ply of the vegetable.

Jamie Mccoo, 69, from Deal in Kent, was brought up in Scot­land and has re­turned north in re­cent years to stock up on his favourite Ayr­shire new pota­toes.

He had con­tacted Scotty Brand to check for stock­ists of the pota­toes in the south­east of Eng­land, but with no avail­abil­ity south of the Bor­der, he was in­vited to Gir­van, South Ayr­shire to dig his own batch with fa­ther and son farm­ers Drew and David Young.
