As the new year approaches, we are using the last few months to prepare so we can hit the ground running in 2022. We are dusting off our builder hats with many new projects underway. Read on to find out more!
Building for a New Beginning
This month we have been busy at the new Kilnaish Estate. This estate is a wonderful place with stunning views towards the Isle of Gigha as well as a 2 acre lochan, known as Loch Cill An Aonghais. However, there is some work to be done to get it into shape for our Lords and Ladies . Therefore, we are starting several projects, including building an entrance road, a car park and some new signs.
We have also now set up spycams around the Reserve so hopefully we will have some footage from the Estate soon. We are excited to watch the species on the Reserve go from strength to strength as we progress further into our re-wilding projects.
SUPPORT THE NEW RESERVES
Constructing a Sustainable Future
Over the years we are very proud of the work we have done across our Reserves. We have undertaken many projects, to get them to a place where they can be enjoyed by both the wildlife and our visiting Highland Titles community. These have included 2 lochans, 3 wildcat enclosures and not to mention miles of paths, bridges and a few cabins! Watch a video showing some of our previous projects here.
However, we are not stopping here and we have another very exciting and secret project underway. Any guesses to what this could be? It is so long that even the wide angle lens struggled to fit in all of our materials!

New to Your Screens
We have just released a new advert for Highland Titles. We hope you like our new advert and you feel it captures our offering and mission to promote conservation in Scotland!

A Sweet Tooth
Pine martens have a notoriously sweet tooth so in order to get some sightings we have been leaving out some ‘jammy pieces’ (jam sandwiches) for our furry friends (jam and peanut butter are definite favourites). It is great to see that pine marten populations are growing not only around the Reserve but also in Scotland as a whole!

Clip of the Month: Spot the Species
Our Spy cams have caught some clips of Red and Roe Deer across the Reserve. Watch until the end for what is most likely the last calf caught on the cameras for this year!
