Photography Holidays

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.

Photography tours are available in the following locations:

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.

Outstanding Customer Service

*

As a 5 Star tour operator this is how we see customer service.

For example, we can’t say we will get back to you within 3 hours because sometimes we won’t and we can’t say we endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible, because that’s just wishy washy and everyone says that.

Great customer service isn’t tangible.

It’s tone of voice, and relationship building.

And going that wee bit further to make someone’s day and it can’t be quantified.

It’s how we make you feel…

and we feel that it’s the following things that go towards making the difference between a holiday, and an amazing, memorable experience.

Our Network
We have fantastic relationships and in many cases personal friendships with our trusted team of suppliers.
A Growing Team
Our team of 35 travel professionals in the office and over 60+ expert guides mean we're small enough to care about every detail but big enough to deal with any curveballs, meaning your holiday experience will be seamless.
We Know Scotland
Being outdoors people, we have an unrivalled depth and breadth of knowledge when it comes to Scotland's wild places. We've been there and can recommend locations and activities from our own experience.

Our holidays reviewed in your words

A thoroughly professional trip in the most amazing place in the UK.

Simon Williams
Photography - Assynt & Coigach

Customer Rating: 4

We had never gone on a trip like this and have to say it was an excellent experience. When we met on Wednesday morning we were strangers and by our departure on Sunday we were truly friends. We can say we had a fabulous time surrounded by the Scottish Highlands and our like-minded companions even if we were dog tired and our socks were wet.
