Grogarry Lodge is a hunting lodge on the Isle of South Uist.
Known for its hospitality and fine food, it provides an ideal base for a week's shooting or fishing on the island.
Our party has taken a week at the end of August for many years now, fishing for sea trout, salmon and brown trout.
The lodge is comfortable and homely rather than luxurious - but what more do you want for a week's fishing?
You get a great breakfast, packed lunches and huge plates of excellent food in the evening.
After a hard day's fishing, a dram or three or four in front of a peat fire will send you off to bed with a fine warm glow inside.
For the week, you can treat the lodge like home. You have access to a kitchen for tea or coffee - great for filling your thermos in the morning.
There are a couple of comfortable lounges, and a well stocked wine cellar if you require it, although we always just take our own.
It is very much meat and fresh sea fish though - we never had any vegetarians in the party, but I am sure they can cater for that too.
As always, the fishing can be unpredictable, but the evenings in the lodge help to make up for those blank days.
