After a relatively poor start to the fishing season things have taken a turn for the better! We were averaging only 2 fish per week in August - but on Thursday 7 grilse were landed. This was followed up by 3 more on Friday, 4 more on Saturday and 1 so far today. This year we have had a particularly dry summer and this always makes things more difficult. However we did have some rain last week and this certainly seems to have freshened things up a bit. We will keep you posted on how the rest of the month goes.
All the best
Dickon and Elly
We are delighted to announce our recent success in being awarded a prestigious 3 Gold Stars Award for our smoked salmon at the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Awards. Uig Lodge were the only smoked salmon entry to be awarded such an accolade and we have also been shortlisted for a national award: 'Best Speciality From Scotland.'
We are one of only 114 producers to have been awarded 3 Gold Stars out of the 7,482 products entered. We are also excited to have been one of only 35 who were subsequently nominated for a national award. We will be competing against 3 other companies for the 'Best Speciality From Scotland' with the winner announced on Monday 5th September at the Royal Garden hotel in London....so fingers crossed!
In celebration, we will be offering all our customers FREE DELIVERY on all orders placed in the next 2 weeks as a thank you for your continued support. You can order online or by phone, tel: 01851 672 396.
With best wishes,
Dickon and all at Uig Lodge.
