SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS PHOTO TOUR DETAILS

 

We introduce our Scottish Highlands Photo Tour, available in March and September each year. Over 9 days, we will photograph the Scottish Highlands, one of the most spectacular destinations in Europe for landscape photography. During this time, we will traverse the amazing landscapes of northern Britain, capturing magical views, cliffs, castles, and lakes. We will delve into the Isle of Skye to capture its incredible landscapes and enjoy the most spectacular nature of the British Isles.

During this Scottish Highlands Photo Tour, as with all our other trips, we will maximize our time photographing the destination. In particular, we will pay special attention to the moments of best light, sunrises, and sunsets. However, due to the frequent bad weather in the area, there is a good chance of storms occurring, with the great possibilities they offer for capturing spectacular light.

All this will be organized by our travel agency for photography enthusiasts, with extensive experience after more than 5 years and 45 organized photo tours. Additionally, you will have the constant assistance of one or several of our photographic guides, with prior experience in the destination and many trips made around the planet. This will ensure that you achieve fantastic photographic results while learning and progressing in your photography.

 

What to Photograph on Our Scottish Highlands Photo Tour?

Undoubtedly, this Scottish Highlands Photo Tour is entirely focused on landscape and architectural photography. In terms of landscapes, it is one of the most spectacular destinations globally, and it also stands out architecturally, capturing the beautiful Edinburgh and the marvelous Scottish castles.

Regarding landscapes, during the trip, we will photograph both mountain landscapes and seascapes. Among the multiple locations we will capture, it’s worth noting impressive mountains, spectacular rock formations, powerful waterfalls, steep cliffs, beautiful beaches, gorgeous rivers and streams, or the mythical Scottish lochs. Therefore, we are talking about an extraordinary destination for any landscape photography enthusiast.

Some of the legendary locations we will photograph include the fascinating Loch Ness, with the story of its mysterious monster, the Etive Mor waterfalls, the imposing rock formation of the “Old Man of Storr” or the formidable cliffs of Neist Point. However, these are just a small sample of the many locations we will visit during this fantastic photographic journey.

On the other hand, we cannot forget about the impressive architecture of Scotland. Apart from our visit to Edinburgh, during this photographic journey, we can photograph the fabulous Scottish castles. Photographing these castles, with the country’s amazing landscapes, will be an absolutely unforgettable experience.

 

When We Conduct This Scottish Highlands Photo Tour?

We have scheduled our Scottish Highlands Photo Tour for these dates because it is one of the best times of the year to travel to Scotland. On the June trip, we can photograph the country at the end of spring, with the beautiful green tones covering the entire landscape. On the other hand, in September, we can already enjoy the first autumnal colors, something that will enhance the beauty of these already incredible locations. Additionally, statistically, September tends to be much less rainy than October or November.

On both dates, we also avoid the busiest tourist months of summer, such as July and August, so we won’t encounter as many tourists during our stay.

In any case, it should be noted that it’s challenging to travel to Scotland for 10 days without encountering any rain.

 

Who is This Scottish Highlands Photo Tour For?

Our Scottish Highlands Photo Tour is a low-difficulty trip, suitable for everyone. The trip is suitable for all levels, both physical and photographic, as well as for all ages.

Firstly, it is a trip suitable for all physical levels. Most of the locations we will photograph will be very close to where we park. However, we will do some short walks to reach other locations. Nonetheless, these are simple and not very long journeys, so you don’t need to worry. Moreover, the places we will reach after these walks will undoubtedly be incredible.

Similarly, there is no age limit, as long as you are reasonably healthy.

Regarding the photographic level, the Scottish Highlands Photo Tour is suitable for all levels. You don’t need to have a high level or even previous experience in taking photos. Our photographic guides assist each participant during the trip, providing personalized attention and adapted to each one’s level. Thanks to this, you will return home with fabulous images of the trip.

Finally, you don’t need a minimum photographic equipment to participate. Although you will find a section on recommended equipment later, it is just a list of the ideal photographic equipment for the trip. However, it is by no means essential equipment to be able to participate. As an example, sometimes we have clients who simply use compact cameras, or even their mobile phone.

 

In Summary

With all this, we are saying that this Scottish Highlands Photo Tour  is an excellent opportunity to photograph the fascinating landscapes of the country while you progress in your photography. A unique occasion to capture the infinite beauty of the Scottish lands, immortalizing its most impressive landscapes alongside its magical castles.

If you are passionate about landscape photography, this trip is highly recommended for you. A perfect destination for an unforgettable journey, while you capture hundreds of beautiful photos. All in a very small group, to foster learning and the best possible experience. Don’t miss this opportunity, and book your spot for this great trip now.

Remember that the Scotland Photo Tour also takes place in September.

This area of the River Brittle, at the foot of the Cuillin Mountains, features amazing photographic potential, so we’ll stay there during most part of the morning.

Afterwards, we will head to the following spot, another of the most amazing locations in Scotland, Neist Point, and the impressive Neist cliffs.

The travel agency carefully studies and designs all the trips that we offer, always trying to adapt them to our travelers needs. All our itineraries and activities are chosen from a photographic point of view. However, the itinerary shown here is just an idea of some of the places that we will be visiting, not being contractual information about what we’ll do during the trip.

The program may also be changed in case of emergency, injury of illness of any of the participants or main photographers.

At the same time, both the photographers and the travel agency reserves the right of changing the tour leader/s, in case it’s necessary. Some of the reasons might include injuries, illness or hospitalization, severe health problems, accidents, (both of themselves as well as first grade relatives too), etc. In those cases, the agency will bring another photographer able to guide the group in the same destination.

RECOMMENDED PHOTO GEAR FOR THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS PHOTO TOUR

This is just a list of the ideal gear for a trip like this. However, there is no need at all to have or bring all this gear. You can join the trip using any kind of camera, or even a smartphone!

Camera

DSLR or MIRRORLESS CAMERA RECOMMENDED

We recommend you bringing a DSLR or Mirrorless system camera with interchangeable lenses, but you can also join the photo tour bringing any kind of camera, including compact ones, or even a smartphone.

Wide Angle Lens

For example, a 14-24mm or a 16-35mm

A wide angle lens will be really useful to capture the impressive Scottish landscapes. It’s also interesting that it’s a fast lens (f/2’8 or faster), for the night photography sessions.

Standard Zoom

For example, a 24-70MM

An standard zoom, like a 24-70mm, or a 24-105mm, will be very useful on this trip. With that focal length range, you will be able to capture a great variety of the scenes we’ll find.

TELEPHOTO LENS

FOR EXAMPLE, A 70-200MM

A telephoto lens like a 70-200mm might be very useful on this trip. It will allow us capturing some distant sceneries, like distant mountains, but it will also add extra weight to your backpack.

 

TRIPOD

A STURDY TRIPOD

A tripod will be needed for our low light photography sessions, such as the sunrise, sunset and night photography ones. We recommend you bringing a really sturdy one, so it’s not easily moved by the wind.

REMOTE CONTROLLER

REMOTE CONTROLLER OR INTERVALOMETER

Bringing a remote or an intervalometer will be a great idea, because they will be very useful in low light sessions, avoiding the need to touch the camera, and therefore minimizing the risk of moved images.

PHOTOGRAPHY FILTERS

ND, GRADUATED AND POLARIZER FILTERS

We recommend you bringing ND filters for long exposure photography, as well as graduated ND filter for sunrises and sunsets. A polarizer filter will be very useful too, to add saturation or avoid reflections.

MEMORY CARDS

ENOUGH MEMORY CARDS

We also recommend you bringing enough memory cards so you can store all the pictures you will take during the trip, or even doing security copies. Given their low price, it’s better to carry extra cards.
