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
A shame about the weather which limited our photography completely on 2 days and made it pretty difficult for another 2 days. Colin was a great teacher and there was plenty of opportunity to ask one to one advice. The food was outstanding and the local knowledge imparted by Andy and Mark on the boat was really helpful. Highlight was spotting a golden eagle,a storm petrel and a very photogenic otter.

Photography - Assynt & Coigach
Another brilliant trip with WS. A wonderful opportunity to get out and photograph the beautiful Highlands, with expert tuition from one of the best landscape photographers around.
