Friends of Aigas

“Congratulations to the hugely dedicated Aigas staff who all teach the importance of our connectedness with nature – that we are a part of it, not apart from it.” HRH The Prince of Wales, Duke of Rothesay

“A jewel in the conservation crown – this is a most remarkable project, rooted in some of Scotland’s most spellbinding scenery. The range of wildlife – from beavers to eagles – is extraordinarily sensitive. I shall return!” Jon Snow, Channel 4 News Presenter

“The thing that bowled me over about Aigas wasn’t the daily ospreys or the peregrine on its eyrie or the glorious peanut-eating pine martens – my first ever. More than anything it was the passion for sharing nature that came through among all the young staff. It permeated the place. It was infectious. And it had its origins in the commitment shown by every member of the  Lister-Kaye family.” Mark Cocker, Author of Birds Britannia

“Aigas is a place like no other. Time spent here is time with friends, rich in natural rewards, it’s a place of stimulation, inspiration, learning and cake. And the wildlife ain’t bad either!” Nick Baker, Television Presenter

“Aigas is the perfect natural playground for a family. Where else do you have otters, beavers, pine martens and a wealth of birdlife all in one place? I felt complete freedom in letting my children roam and explore the natural wilderness there and make their own remarkable discoveries.” Miranda Krestovnikoff, President of the RSPB

“What an amazing few days these have been. What you are doing here – spreading awareness and love of nature is FANTASTIC! I love it.” Dr Jane Goodall DBE

“I’ve just been watching pine martens in the Aigas hide. I don’t think we truly appreciate nature unless we witness it, feel it, smell it and touch it for ourselves, an awareness fixed by a skipped heartbeat, a drawn breath or a dropped jaw. Aigas has some of the most exciting fauna our isles have to offer and, in a stunning setting, gives people this intensity of experience thousands of times a year.” Chris Packham, Wildlife Presenter and Author

“The future of wildlife is in our hands. At Aigas you can experience the joys and the excitement – and the wonder – of wild nature.” Kate Humble, Television Presenter
