Hughie features in Ernest Journal

Hughie Macleod, a local prawn fisherman, has been supplying The Pierhouse for 16 years. Now Hughie has featured in an article in Ernest Journal, "a blog, iPad magazine and biannual printed journal for curious and adventurous gentlefolk."

The illustrated article describes a typical day in the life of Hughie, creel fishing for langoustines from the local waters of Lochs Linnhe and Etive - langoustines that are destined for The Pierhouse kitchen. Hughie catches langoustines using the traditional method of creel baiting as opposed to the very controversial and unenvironmentally friendly method of trawl fishing where nets are dragged along the sea floor catching everything and anything in its path.
