Media reviews

"I have known Patrick Lowe for many years as a friend and a man of the hills. Coming from a person of huge integrity, this book is a suitable appendix to A. G. Cameron's The Wild Red Deer of Scotland published so long ago. The Red Deer herd on Rum was ideal for research, being isolated by the sea but this research has sometimes been jeopardised by confusion in the public mind about deer management, public ownership, the regeneration of native birchwood and the identification of deer with private land ownership in other parts of Scotland."
– Patrick Gordon-Duff-Pennington, Muncaster Castle
