On this trip that begins in Edinburgh, a city that well worth a visit, we will explore the Highlands, specifically the Glencoe and Rannoch Moor area with its majestic mountains and valleys. We will not forget the iconic castles of Kilchurn and Eilean Donan before leaving for 3 nights on the Isle of Skye, where among others we will not forget to visit the Fairy Pools and the iconic Old Man of Storr. In addition to the most iconic spots in Scotland that are visited by tourists and photographers, we will also be shooting at some places off the beaten track.

Scotland is also famous for its whiskey, so visiting one of its many distilleries is an almost obligatory stopping point.

FAQs

What support will I have from photographic leaders?
Be aware that the leaders are not tour guides. However, by the knowledge of the places, they will provide the historical information related that they are aware of. The main job of the leaders is the organization of the trip, the management of the times and routes so that all can be in the right place at the right time. They will be 100% of the time with the participants.
Will I have some photographic support of the leaders?
A photo trip is not like a workshop where leaders are totally focused on the participants. In this trip, the leaders will photograph side by side with the participants, and share with the group the frames, composition and settings. They will be available to help those who need it.
The program mention that the transportation are included, will I have to drive?
No. All driving is assured. You just have to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the landscape.
The flight is not included in the package, but can I request photo details some booking help regarding my flight?
Photo details is not a tour operator, but in our travels we have a partner who will be happy to book your flight and make you a corresponding offer. It is up to you to choose our partner or personally deal with your usual travel agent.
What do I need to bring regarding photographic equipment, and what about clothing?
With your registration and booking, before the date of travel, you will be sent a detailed program where all these issues are addressed.
