The Isle of Skye
Skye needs little introduction and our first location takes us to the magical inner Hebridean Isle with the big reputation for landscape photography.
Big on drama the Trotternish landforms of the Quiraing and the classic Cullin waterfalls and cascades of Glen Brittle will be the key focus of our attention.
After a comfortable night in Portree and sessions in Sligachan and around the Quiraing we’ll take the Calmac ferry over the Minch from Uig to the wild empty and pastel hued beaches and seascapes of Harris.
This is a place where time slows down, space opens up and you have a feeling of peace and being in the moment.
