Where is Uig?
location map Uig Lodge  smokehouse
Uig is on the Atlantic coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

Although on the same latitude as Anchorage, Alaska, the Gulf Stream keeps the area relatively mild and frost-free.

The mild climate and unpolluted water favours an abundance of wildife and game on the islands, particularly the wild Smoked Salmon Recipe Ideas for which Uig is famed.
