British Summer Time in Uig

Stornoway Gazette, Local and District News.

June 8, 1917

“AN UAIR UR” – Not wishing to be reckoned as ‘behind the times’, West Uig is now adopting the new time. With the advent of June, Summer Time was acknowledged as the correct hour and most people have moved their clocks an hour forward. If this time is strictly adhered to, very gratifying results will be realised.

(BST was introduced in 1916 – evidently Uig resisted for a year – though it seems to have caused further difficulty.)
