A spurtle is a traditional Scottish kitchen tool used for stirring porridge, soups, stews, and broths. It is a long, thin, wooden stick with a flattened end. The flattened end is used to stir the food without breaking it up or forming lumps. Spurtles are often made from beechwood, but they can also be made from other types of wood.

Spurtles have been used in Scotland for centuries. The first known mention of a spurtle was in a 15th century poem. Spurtles were originally made from the bones of sheep or cattle, but they were later replaced by wood.
