Scotland’s Oldest Salmon Fish House
PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER IN THE ONLINE SHOP.
We have temporarily suspended all shipments to EU COUNTRIES, ISLE OF MAN, CHANNEL ISLANDS AND NORTHERN IRELAND, because of the difficulties we are experiencing getting parcels delivered, due to post Brexit delays at customs, covid-19 and shortage of drivers. We hope you will understand and be patient until these problems are resolved. We will keep this situation under review and we are hopeful that we will be able to send as usual for Christmas.
We are still sending out smoked salmon in mainland UK. However, due mainly to the covid-19 pandemic, driver shortages and problems with delivery of fuel, Fedex our next day delivery courier, is experiencing some delays, which are unavoidable and which they are working hard to get back to normal. It would be prudent if you would order your delivery a day or two before you really need it, to avoid any disappointment.
It is well worthwhile to set up an account with us, which will store your contact details and those of your friends who you might want to send to, this is especially helpful when sending to multiple addresses. In our new website you can order any amount of our products, to one or more addresses(UK and EU only).
Please read the FAQ’s page for answers to frequently asked questions. When choosing a delivery date, chose weekdays only. Remember someone needs to be in to receive the order, usually anytime between 8am and 5pm. If you think you may be out, give us alternative instructions, eg. “leave in shed” or “leave with neighbours”. Customers who are working, may find it better for us to deliver to their works address.
The Ugie Salmon Fish House was built in 1585 at the mouth of the River Ugie at Peterhead in the North East Scotland. It was originally built for George Keith, the Fifth Earl Marischal for curing and preserving game and fish. It is the only building in Peterhead surviving more than four centuries.
The River Ugie
The Ugie Fish House overlooks the estuary of the River Ugie which is highly acclaimed for its excellent Salmon and Sea trout Fishing. Sadly due to Conservation measures, all catching of the iconic wild salmon in the sea and in the river is prohibited.
