Uig Lodge History

 

http://www.ceuig.com/nggallery/post/visitors-at-uig-lodge-1897-8/image/1285  

 

These photographs date from 1897-98 and come from an album belonging to the family of William E Lawson, a London barrister who took Uig Lodge for those two seasons.  The photos show Lawson with his dogs and other family entertainments, a pony and trap on the beach, local girls at the shieling (predating our existing shieling photos by nearly 30 years), and the gamekeeper Roderick Mackenzie and his son Donald.

Huge thanks to Sue Milward, great-grand-daughter of WE Lawson, for contributing them, and to Jim Henderson for suggesting that she do so. 

“I can’t tell you how different your fish is from what passes here for smoked salmon. The subtle smoky smell caught our attention as soon as we opened the packet – so fresh”
