Isle of Skye, Scotland, Photography Workshop, March 2021


15th – 20th March 2021 4 PLACES LEFT

The Isle of Skye offers some of the most dramatic scenery to the landscape photographer in the UK. Situated on the western side of Scotland, this fascinating island offers a wide variety of exciting, inspirational and mesmorising views to be captured on camera.

Dominated by the Black Cuillins, Skye’s highest peak is Sgùrr Alasdair at 992 m (3,255 ft). It is visible from almost everywhere on the island but none more so than at Elgol which is perhaps the most impressive location to see the Black Cuillins in all their glory and Skye is known for its dramatic weather and unrivalled light. Five days on this island will have you return time and time again but be warned, you will fall in love with it.

During our time on Skye, we will visit many of the iconic locations that have made the island famous. From the 160ft tall Old Man of Storr that stands guard high up over the east side of the island to the hugely impressive Quiraing and Trotternish, both created from huge Jurassic landslips. The tremendously atmospheric Elgol from which the dominant and mystical Black Cuillins stand before you across Loch Scavaig. The Fairy Pool waterfalls and Glen Brittle river are truly unique with its aqua coloured water, plunge pools and an underwater arch, sights that will leave you you with long lasting memories.

Sligachan Bridge and its river also feature on the list of locations that you will definitely not want to miss, especially during a glorious sunset as the Red Cuillins glow vibrant orange. Neist Point and its lighthouse that stands high up on the edge of a peninsula on the most westerly point of the island also allow for some spectacular sunsets to be captured here.

The Isle of Skye has earned itself an enviable reputation for delivering spectacular scenery in dramatic weather. You will love it.
