Itinerary

Sept 10 – 11, Edinburgh

The capital city of Scotland, is a captivating destination that seamlessly blends history, culture, and natural beauty. With its stunning architecture, including the iconic Edinburgh Castle perched atop an ancient volcanic rock, the city offers a picturesque backdrop for any photo tour. From the charming cobbled streets of the historic Old Town to the elegant Georgian buildings of the New Town, Edinburgh’s diverse architectural styles provide endless opportunities for capturing unique and striking images. Additionally, the city is home to numerous landmarks and attractions, such as the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, and Arthur’s Seat, a dormant volcano offering panoramic views of the city. Whether you’re exploring the vibrant streets or capturing the mystical atmosphere of the city’s underground vaults, Edinburgh is a photographer’s dream come true.

Sept 12 – Oban & Sept 13 – Fort William

Often referred to as the “Gateway to the Isles,” Oban is a charming coastal town nestled in the Scottish Highlands. Known for its picturesque harbor, Oban offers breathtaking views of the surrounding islands and the vast Atlantic Ocean. The town is steeped in history, with ancient castles and monuments dotting the landscape. The iconic McCaig’s Tower, a Colosseum-like structure, offers panoramic views of the town and the bay, making it a must-visit spot for any photo tour. Oban is also renowned for its seafood and whisky distillery, adding a culinary delight to your visual feast. 

On to Fort William, a town in the western Scottish Highlands, on the shores of Loch Linnhe. It’s known as a gateway to Ben Nevis, the U.K.’s highest peak, and Glen Nevis valley, home to Steall Falls. 

From our base in Fort William, we also explore the gorgeous Glencoe Valley and a trip to the Glenfinnan Viaduct with the Harry Potter Train!

Sept 14-15, the Isle of Skye

Known for its rugged landscapes and dramatic cliffs, is a photographer’s paradise in the Scottish Highlands. Its natural beauty is punctuated by the iconic Old Man of Storr, Mealt Falls, and the imposing Cuillin mountain range. The island’s rich history is evident in the ancient castles, crofting villages, and sheep covered rolling hills, while its unique culture is reflected in the Gaelic language still spoken by many locals. A visit to the Isle of Skye is a journey into a world of breathtaking vistas and captivating heritage.

Sept 16 – 17, the Isle of Lewis and Harris

The largest island in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, is a haven for photographers. Its diverse landscapes range from the white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of Harris to the rugged mountainous terrain of Lewis. The island is also rich in history, with ancient stone circles and traditional Gaelic culture adding to its photographic appeal. The 5000-year-old Callanish Stones are the largest groups of standing stones and unlike Stonehenge, you can walk amongst the megaliths

Sept 16, Inverness

The cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands, is a treasure trove of historical sites and castles. Its picturesque setting on the River Ness provides a stunning backdrop for the iconic Inverness Castle. Nearby, the historic Culloden Battlefield and the ancient standing stones at Clava Cairns offer a glimpse into Scotland’s rich past. The surrounding area is dotted with majestic castles like Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness and the fairy-tale Dunrobin Castle, making Inverness and its environs a must-visit for history enthusiasts and photographers alike.

Sept 19, Edinburgh

Back for our final night in Scotland’s compact hilly capitol. Explore the medieval Old Town, the Royal Mile, and end with our farewell dinner. As the sun sets, the city’s skyline, illuminated against the night sky, provides a fitting, picturesque end to our Scottish Highlands photo tour.
