Dramatic coastal and mountain scenery photographed at dawn and dusk; forests, lochs and natural details; castles, monuments, cityscapes and local ‘characters’; highland cattle.
Two well-appointed, comfortable minibuses with plenty of luggage space.
Good quality, wholesome food is assured throughout the tour. Breakfast and dinner will be taken at our accommodation with packed lunches taken in the field. We can almost always accommodate specific dietary requirements - just tell us on the booking form and we’ll make sure you get what you want.
Expect a mixed bag with both sunshine and rain (or even snow). Weather is very changeable and it can be windy in exposed locations. Temperatures are likely to range from 0c to +20c.
Level of fitness
Most activities will involve only short walks but you will at times be working on exposed, uneven ground, including cliffs. You should be sure-footed with good balance. The Old Man of Storr on Skye requires a higher level of fitness. Leaving in the dark to arrive on site for first light, the ascent is 1000ft. over 1 mile on a rocky path. Of course these more demanding excursions are optional and although we will be working in some places with uneven terrain, overall a reasonable level of fitness and agility will allow you to participate in most activities.
