Scottish Photographic Experiences

Our Scottish Photographic Experiences have been developed over a lifetime of living in this beautiful country. Our experience of living with and photographing the wildlife and landscapes in Scotland stretches to several decades. As photographers ourselves, we plan the timings and locations to get the best possible opportunities to take home stunning images. No secrets are held back: we share every trick and every special location with photographers attending our Scottish Photographic Experiences.

Highlands in Winter
1st to 3rd February 2019

The Highlands of Scotland take on a breathtaking beauty in Winter and nowhere more spectacularly than in the haunting wonder of Glencoe. This striking glacial valley is a fantastic area for landscape photography at any time of the year but winter adds a stark beauty on top. Add to that a two-night stay in a beautiful Highland hotel and it is easy to see why this is one of our most popular Scottish Photographic Experiences.
East Coast Seabird Safari
7th to 9th June 2019

This three-day safari takes you up the East Coast of Scotland to some of the most spectacular seabird colonies anywhere in the World. From the Atlantic Puffins and Arctic Terns of the Isle of May, to Scotland's only Gannet colony at Troup Head. In between we also get close to huge Razorbill, Guillemot, Fulmar and Kittiwake colonies along the coast between. This safari is a must for wildlife photographers and really emphasises just how vital the east coast of Scotland is to World seabird populations.
Dolphin Trail
12th to 14th July 2019

The Bottlenose Dolphins of Scotland's east coast are the largest anywhere in the World and they provide some spectacular photographic opportunities as they feed, play and breach. Our Dolphin Trail Experience starts at Aberdeen Harbour, where the Dolphins regularly breach at the harbour entrance and often bow-surf the huge oil supply vessels. We will also visit Chanonry Point, where they are often seen so close to shore that you can hear their conversations! We finish with a trip out on a rib from Cromarty, to where the Dolphins come to you!

Grand Tour of Scotland
10th to 16th August 2019

Join us for a week of stunning wildlife and landscape photography, Highland hospitality and uplifting experiences. We trace a circular route from Aberdeen, through Perthshire and across to Glencoe and north through the Great Glen to Inverness and beyond, before returning along the Moray coast and down to Aberdeen. Along the way we will reach the best spots to photograph those place names and historical sites with names that just roll off the tongue: Glenfinnan Viaduct, Spean Bridge, Glencoe, Glen Affric and more! We'll also aim to photograph Red Deer, Ptarmigan, Red Grouse and plenty of other wildlife along the way.
Iconic Mountain Views
4th to 6th October 2019

The far north west of Scotland contains some of the most spectacular peaks in the whole country; from the sugar loaf of Suilebheinn (Suilven) to the craggy wildness of Stac Pollaidh (Stack Polly), there are so many stunning mountains in this area and beautiful lochs and marshlands to create fantastic foreground interest. Based in an old coaching house that is now a delightful Highland hotel, we will explore and capture the astounding beauty of this breathtaking area of Scotland.

Autumn Colours
30th October to 1st November 2019

Glen Affric is famous for its stunning display of colours during the Autumn, when the trees change colour. The variety of trees means that the colours change at different rates, giving a wonderful mix of every colour from scarlet to gold. Add in hills like Sgurr na Lapaich, beautiful Loch Affric and Loch Beinn a' Bheadhoin, plus the rapids of the River Affric and we have a perfect recipe for photographic goodness!

Ptarmigan & Mountain Hare
7th December 2019

The striking Ptarmigan is a unique mountain grouse that prefers to live above 2,000ft above sea level. In the Winter they change colour from a speckled brown to a bright white that camoflages them against the snow. Mountain (or Blue) Hares do the same. After a chairlift ride to the top a mountain, our challenge is to spot these beautiful animals and photograph them.
