Since 1984, Uig Lodge has been hand-producing some of the finest smoked salmon that can be found in Scotland. Its outstanding quality was recognised in 2007 when we were awarded our first Gold Star in the Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards. In 2008 we started to smoke organic sea trout and a year later we were awarded our second and third Gold Stars for our cold and hot smoked sea trout. In 2011 we were awarded 3 gold stars and shortlisted for a national award and we repeated this feat in 2013 and 2014. Finally, on 8th September 2014, in this our 30th year, we won one of the major national awards presented by Great Taste, 'Speciality Producer of the Year' and received our first ever golden fork!
Our customer list grows year on year and as well as supplying private customers, we also supply a growing number of the UK’s most prestigious hotels, restaurants and pubs, including several Michelin starred restaurants.
Part of the magic of Uig Lodge is that it comes with its own private fly fishing on the Fhorsa system. It has the wonderful advantage over other fisheries of being able to offer its guests an entire river system to fish, from the lochs to the sea. With recent annual catches of over 100 salmon, 50 sea trout and 400 brown trout, Uig is a superb all-round fishery and has plenty to offer the experienced fisherman as well as the complete beginner.
The Isle of Lewis is the largest and northern most island of the Outer Hebrides – an archipelago of unspoilt islands lying off the north-west coast of Scotland’s mainland. Also known as the Western Isles, these beautiful islands, and in particular Lewis, are steeped in history and mystery and boast some of the world’s finest beaches.
