Programmes by Theme
Most of our holidays cover a wide range of topics but some have a central theme or cover remote locations while others are specialist - such as our photography weeks. This page allows you to select a holiday that covers your specific interests. Alternatively, you can view holidays by date.
Our Aigas Wildlife weeks are our most popular and with 18 weeks running this programme, you'll almost certainly find a date that suits you. Its a little bit of everything; understanding and enjoying the whole show - from birds, to mammals, to landscapes to history.
Aigas combines wonderful landscapes, amazing wildlife, an airy art studio and peace and quiet - perfect for art & creative writing courses. Each year we bring in a range of experts in their field to lead artists and writers on journeys of inspiration and creativity.
All of our holidays will contain an element of seeing bird life. However, we run three seasonal birding weeks for those with a particular interest in our flying fauna. One or two others with a birding angle are also listed here.
The garden at Aigas is something we're proud of and which all our guests enjoy. The holidays below go a step further and explore wildflowers and domestic gardens across the Highlands, where our local experts will help you discover rare and delicate beauties such as the Twinflower (Linnaea borealis.)
Most of our holidays are for adults. However for a couple of weeks a year, during the summer holidays, we turn the place over to families. Spend seriously quality time with your children or grandchildren on a Nature's Child week.
The history and archaeology of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland are as fascinating as the natural habitat and, of course, the three go hand-in-hand. Our rangers will take you to sites of interest from thousands of years ago up to recent history and explain their relevance.
The islands of Scotland are as iconic and fascinating as the Highlands as well as wild, remote and beautiful. We cover the Inner and Outer Hebrides, the Orkney Isles, Skye and Shetland.
With badgers, pine martens, beavers, red squirrels, red and roe deer breeding on the property, no Aigas guest is going to miss out on mammals. However, for those interested in making a week of deeply understanding mammals, we've developed the following holidays.
We are extremely pleased to be able to offer Laurie Campbell's courses. There are few people in the world who know as much about photographing Scottish wildlife.
Aigas General Manager - Warwick Lister-Kaye - is also now leading some photography programmes - look out for the Norway aurora trip!
