The young Scots claimed a 2-1 victory the last time the two sides met at the Stadion de Goffert in Nijmegen in November 2011.
And Billy Stark's side are aiming for maximum points again in Thursday's European Championship Qualifier.
McHattie said: "They are a good team and they have a lot of good players.
"They are quick, direct, good at the back and good going forward. We just have to be on our toes and watch out for that.
"The last group of 21s beat them 2-1 so we have got faith. We've just got to work hard and see what we can do."
Stark's men sit level on points with Slovakia at the top of the group, with the Dutch kicking off their own campaign against the Scots.
McHattie said: "We've had a good start. We have played one and won one and we can't ask for much more than that.
"We have to see what we can do in this game now.
"Hopefully, if things go our way, we will be sitting top of the group with six points."
Scotland's last outing proved to be a crushing disappointment as they crashed to a 6-0 defeat to England in a friendly last month.
But, as far as McHattie is concerned, that match is now firmly in the past.
The defender said: "The boys were disappointed with the last result but we've got to build ourselves up and look forward to this game.
"It's a massive game in the qualifiers and we are looking forward to it.
"Especially with it being against England, that result was going to hurt us. But it's vital that we move on and hopefully we can perform well in this game.
"We've just got to take it on the chin and try to perform well in the next game.
"We are not going to dwell on it, that's probably the wrong thing to do."
