The wild Atlantic sweeps over miles of silver sands, wildflower meadows, (Machair) a riot of colour in the summer months, look up at the cry of Sea Eagle high above Loch Bee, welcome to South Uist. Stunningly beautiful the Island of South Uist is one of the few places in Britain that hasn’t undergone industrial farming, or been directly affected by heavy industry.  The result is a rare habitat with crystal clear lochs and an abundance of rare birds and wildlife.  Where a close community lifestyle created from fishing, farming and crofting, that goes back centuries, still exists today. With a population of less than 2000 residents what jobs are available on the islands are precious, therefore what is produced has to be the best.  Here at Salar our small team share a love of Uist and are passionate in what we produce from our shores.  Our Smoked Salmon has won awards in the past and will continue to do so as we strive to achieve a legacy that can be handed on to the next generation of islanders.
