Your guide picks you up from your accommodation and drives towards the stunning Trossachs National Park, where we stop at the mighty falls of Falloch for that perfect picture opportunity. This is where we cross over the ancient national fault line and travel into the Highlands, where the landscapes change dramatically. Capture some beautiful images of the Rannoch Moor, which is covered in heather, lochans, and peat bogs. You also enjoy stunning views of the Black Mount and the Buachaille Etive Mor.
We then head through Scotland’s most famous valley, Glencoe. This is where we enjoy taking stunning panoramas of this unique-looking landscape. Feel history come alive when we tell the tales of the massacre of the Macdonald clan, which took place in 1692. This is where we stop for our lunch at the award-winning Clachaig Inn.
We then travel through the Great Glen, eventually travelling west toward the stunning Eilean Donan Castle. This has to be Scotland’s most photographed castle, heaped with history. Soon we arrive at your accommodation in Skye with enough time to explore your surroundings and enjoy a traditional Scottish meal.
We travel to the north of the island towards the Trotternish Ridge, which is home to some of the most dramatic mountain formations in the world. Enjoy photographing the spectacular cliffs of the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, and the beautiful mountain pass of the Quiraing.
We then return you to your accommodation in Skye.
After breakfast, we drive down to the small scattered hamlet of Elgol, which lies on the shores of Loch Scavaig on the south coast of Isle of Skye. We can enjoy the views of the Cuillin Mountains and explore the beach area, which offers many photographic opportunities.
We then travel towards the Fairy Pools in Glen Brittle. The Fairy Pools are a number of waterfalls that drain the Coire na Creiche in the Cuillin Massif.
You then travel to the most westerly point on the island and take in the spectacular views at Neist Point. Here you can look down towards the famous Neist Point lighthouse, where you may also be able to see dolphins and whales swimming by in the sea below during sunset.
We then take you back to your accommodation in Skye.
We visit the beautiful Talisker Bay, where you can photograph the stunning sea stacks that sit on top of the glimmering silver sands of the bay. It is a picturesque scene that is surrounded by sea cliffs and waterfalls, making it the best way to finish off our tour.
After your four-day photography tour, we soon arrive back towards the lowlands and drop you off at your accommodation of choice.
