Aigas Field Centre

Founded in 1976 by Sir John Lister-Kaye OBE, Aigas Field Centre has been providing nature themed educational courses for over 40 years.

Aigas exists to promote environmental education, to contribute to a greater level of understanding of Man’s place in the natural environment and to foster and encourage the concepts of sustainability, biodiversity and an integrated and holistic ecological approach to the use of land and natural resources.

The Aigas ethos is encapsulated in a quotation from Scottish naturalist and author Gavin Maxwell, to whose memory Aigas Field Centre is dedicated:

“Man has suffered in his separation from the soil and the other living creatures of the world; the evolution of his intellect has outrun his needs as an animal, and yet he must still, for security, look long at some portion of the Earth as it was before he tampered with it.” Gavin Maxwell
