The landscape of this area inspired Arthur Ransome for the setting of his book "Great Northern" (the story of children protecting eggs of the great northern diver). The Castle of the Gaels was based on the lodge where he stayed in 1945 and 1946 whilst researching Great Northern. Great Northern was the last of his 12 books in the Swallows and Amazons series.
The Uig area is famous for more than it's fishing, celebrity visitors and smoked
salmon. It has an interesting history including being the place where
one of the oldest chess sets in the world was discovered. Believed to be more
than 700 years old, it was on the beach in front of the lodge that they were found
