TLC Travels- The Scottish Highlands

House of Aigas circa 1700s.
Home of Aigas Field Center since 1976. 
The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County (TLC) travels to the Scottish Highlands with an adventurous group of TLC members, and biologist leader, Karen Travers. The small group arrived at the Aigas Field Centre on Sunday May 26th, a Victorian sporting lodge fully equipped with an extensive arboretum, formal gardens, native pinewoods, birch woodlands, exotic plantations, moorland and agricultural lands. This will be their home base for the next two weeks. A house tour was given by the owner, Sir John Lister-Kaye (pictured below), followed by a guided walk through the Aigas Nature Trail.

Hike in the Caledonian Forest.

Spring arrived 5 weeks late this year in the Highlands so the group was able to enjoy daffodils and tulips twice this year - a real treat! Today, the group took a short trip to Glen Affric and the Caledonian forest, one of the most beautiful glans in the Highlands. Click here for more pictures of the Scottish Highlands trip, and stay tuned as they continue their adventure through vast and beautiful sites such as, Isle of Skye, Orkney Islands and more!
