Isle of Skye Adventure Photography Workshop

Explore some of the world’s most beautiful scenery alongside an award-winning photographer

Visit famous landmarks like the rocky coastal monolith of Storr, and the Quiraing - formed by a massive, ancient landslip

Never run out of subject matter as you explore a wild landscape of waterfalls, lochs and castles that seems to change texture and colour throughout the day

Key Information

Day 1

Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle

Eilean Donan, Scotland

Meet your host in Inverness and head for your iconic first photo stop - Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle. Your expert guides will assess your photography skills and tailor the following days to take them to the next level. Continue on to the main event – the Isle of Skye. Depending on the time of year you might even get to photograph sunset before checking into your comfortable bunkhouse in the north of the island and enjoying dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 2

See the Quiraing and capture the sunset

The Quiraing, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Hiking

4-5hrs

Wake up early to explore the breath-taking scenery of the Quiraing, a mystical landscape of cliffs and pinnacles backed by the sea, caused by an ancient landslip. Hike to some of the best viewpoints on the island and spend the rest of the morning relaxing or working on your photography skills. After lunch, set out on an afternoon hike through the wild terrain of Skye before returning to the bunkhouse for the evening.

Day 3

Storr and Southern Skye

Isle of Skye

Get up for a dawn photo workshop, this time at the iconic rock pinnacles of Storr. Watch as the morning light slowly changes the colour of the towering cliff faces and then hike back to the hostel for breakfast. Take a drive through southern Skye, stopping to photograph some lesser-known sights, before finally returning home with a memory card full of incredible photographs and a whole suite of new skills.

I cannot put into words just how good this trip was. From the off, we were immersed in learning how to use our DSLR's. So much was crammed into three days, that it felt like we'd been there for a week.

This was one of the best weekends i have ever had the pleasure of being a part of, and the guides, Harry and Ben were not just highly knowledgable but also really top guys.

I cannot rate this trip highly enough, it blew my mind.

Absolutely loved this trip. The guides Harry and Ben were brilliant, I went from knowing very little about how to work my camera to take photos in full manual mode, and tips on composition. The locations and view points of the beauty spots were beautiful. The accommodation was good too very friendly staff great location with views over Uig Harbour. The early morning hikes for sunrise are well worth getting up out of bed for!!! The food was lovey too went for dinner and had the best fish and chips ive ever had washed down with a localy brewed beer. Would highly recommend this trip. I will be back

Nick and Harry were brilliant. I learned more than I would have expected to over two days thanks to their experience, knowledge and patience, helped in no small measure by the stunning landscapes of Skye.
