Samuel Monk was the winner of the Best Dressed Potato category at this year’s Barra and Vetersay Potato competition.

In its eighth year and held in the Castlebay Bar it was originally thought up by a group of local bar regulars who would argue over who had the best potatoes.

See this week’s Stornoway Gazette, out on Thursday, to see more photos of the day and to find out who the winner of the Best Potato was and who got the wooden spoon for the Worst potato.
