Website Links Related to my Work
This site links to websites of other people and organisations with which my work is closely connected. This is far from being a complete list.

In 1997 we transferred most of our assets over to the new Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust which comprises 8 trustees, 4 being elected island residents representing the local community, 2 being Highland Council appointees representing the wider democratic constituency, and 2 from the Scottish Wildlife Trust representing the flowers and little critters.
