UIST NEWS THURSDAY 19th JULY A bright start to the day here in Uist today, it is forecast to start raining at lunchtime though and is to continue until the early hours of tomorrow morning. The Scottish Thistle is now in bloom here in Uist, the flowers range in colour from dark pink to violet and have a round spherical shape about them. This shape allow the flowers to group in twos or threes on the tips of branches. The flowers can range from 2-6 cm in diameter, and are accompanied by small leaves at their bases which contain pointy, yellow spines. According to legend, an invading Norse army was attempting to sneak up at night upon a Scottish army's encampment. During this operation one barefoot Norseman had the misfortune to step upon a thistle, causing him to cry out in pain, thus alerting Scots to the presence of the Norse invaders. Legend also has it that because of the heroic role the plant played in the outcome of the battle, the thistle was immediately chosen as a national emblem.

WELCOME TO THE 

HEBRIDEAN SMOKEHOUSE WEBSITE


THE HOME OF THE BEST

SCOTTISH SMOKED SALMON

AND SHELLFISH.

Prue Leith, "the best in the world".

 

 

 

Hebridean Smokehouse is located on the Isle of North Uist - part of the Outer Hebridean archipelago west of the Scottish mainland. The pristine clean waters that surround our shores support all the salmon and sea trout we use to make our special peat and beechwood smoked products and the small local inshore fishing fleet land the very best scallops for us to smoke with locally-cut peat.

 

We have been smoking locally reared and landed fish and shellfish here on North Uist for nearly 30 years. It is the combination of excellent fish and the skills of our expert team that has earned Hebridean Smokehouse a reputation for producing the very best smoked salmon.
