UIST NEWS TUESDAY 14th AUGUST

 

A very miserable wet start to the day here in Uist, it is forecast to be cloudy and damp for the rest of the day with West South Westerly winds gusting up to 28mph. The weather is forecast to be similar tomorrow with South South Westerly winds gusting up to 40mph later on in the afternoon. Black-tailed Godwits were seen on North Uist and Benbecula yesterday, a Great Skua, Kittiwakes, Gannets, Manx Shearwaters, Fulmers, Storm Petrels, a Black Guillemot and Whimbrel were also seen off South Uist yesterday. White-beaked Dolphins, Common Dolphins and Minke Whale were seen from the Oban to Barra crossing yesterday too. The White-beaked Dolphin has a dark grey upper body and flanks with light grey patches, including a 'saddle' behind the dorsal fin. The underside is light grey to almost white in colour. As the common name implies, the beak is usually white in colour but may be a dark grey in older Dolphins. They can reach speeds of up to 28mph, they frequently ride on the bow wave of high speed boats and jump clear of the sea's surface. Their life expectancy is unknown, in general though,  Dolphins can live for approximately 40 years in the wild.

 

Next posting will be Wednesday 15th August 2018, order by 10.30am for sameday dispatch.


 

 

 


 


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.
