Photography Holidays

Book your activity holiday with Europe's No.1 Adventure Travel Company - Wilderness Scotland

Our photography holidays in Scotland are designed to help you discover Scotland’s wild places and wild light.

Develop your photography skills under the supervision of our expert photography coaches.

Most of our photography holidays are guided by Colin Prior, the foremost landscape photographer in the UK.

The photography holidays combine practical instruction in wild places as well as relaxed evening seminars back at the small hotel or guest house accommodation. With small groups, much of the photography coaching is offered on a one-to-one basis.

As these photography courses have a focus on capturing wild places, a reasonable level of fitness is required to walk to some of the photographic locations. Join us for a week of wild light as you develop your photography skills.

Trip Reviews

Customer Kudos

Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.

Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

Photography Trip - Knoydart & the Small Isles
Although the trip seemed initially to be quite expensive when you take into account the services of a professional photographer, the wonderful food, having the use of a dedicated boat to enjoy the wild areas of Scotland, then this was worth every penny. All the staff who we encountered were so friendly and helpful too and even came down to the pier to see us off when we left at the end of the week. I enjoyed my time so much it was a truly memorable trip.

Photography Trip - Knoydart & the Small Isles
For the person who wants to hone their landscape photographic skills, this is an excellent course with the top professional Colin Prior. I will always recommend Wilderness Scotland to others for very memorable holidays
in this part of the Britsh Isles. Scotland is
overlooked so often for visits to far off countries - the west coast has so much to offer.
