Abstract: We have obtained high resolution K-band images of 13 BL Lac objects and of a sample of FR I radiogalaxies using UKIRT with the tip-tilt system. We have been able to resolve the host galaxies of most of the BL Lac objects and determined their morphologies. With few exceptions the hosts have been found to be elliptical galaxies. We compare the properties of the BL Lac host with those of the radiogalaxies and discuss the results in the context of Blazar unification models.
