Aigas Field Center is one of the hidden gems of Scotland. Sir John, Lady Lucy, and Warwick Lister-Kaye have developed a program that is educational, inspirational, thought provoking and awe inspiring. They have attracted and trained a superb staff who are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and courteous. The trip was truly the best organized and well done of any we have taken to date.

Outstanding program combining natural world learning with history. The variety of activities, from hiking trails to visiting castles was exceptional. The food is five star quality every day and the Aigus Field Center's rangers are chosen carefully to be able to add materially to the entire experience.

“In the Heart of the Scottish Highlands” was a wonderful travel experience. Well done to all the planners! The Central Highlands were amazing; made more amazing by the staff of the Aigas Field Center. The Aigas Estate, an inspiring natural setting, was brightened by young rangers who were attentive to our every need. Sir John Lister-Kaye, the naturalist at the helm of the adventure, poured his love of the Highlands into developing this program. Designer meals were lovingly planned by Lady Lucy every day. The House of Aigas, the elegantly restored estate home of Lister-Kaye, was the living center of activity. The estate invited meditative moments at the gardens and ponds, leisurely hikes around the loch, and warm gatherings by the fireplaces. Daily adventures to the surrounding castles, glens, lochs, villages and forests were expertly directed and narrated by the Aigas field staff.

This tour is a rare gem in the the crown of UK tours.

You will never have a better experience than offered by the Aigus Field Center part of this trip. Sir John, Lady Lucy, and the ranger staff are informed, great communicators, and make you feel so welcome. Isle of Skye was wonderful. There was not enough time to take advantage of Edinburgh, arrive a few days early if you want to take advantage of all the city has to offer. Edinburgh palace and castle tours were not included with this trip.

What a wonderful adventure! The staff at Aigas and the facilities could not have been better. The presentations and discussions of the past, as well as the present and hoped for future, were thought provoking.

Aigas Field Centre is a gem, staffed by fabulous folks: friendly, knowledgeable, patient. I am inspired to learn as much about my home as the Aigas Rangers know about theirs!
