    Travel Planning and Advice

    Highland Shoot

    Our photography holidays are designed to help you discover Scotland’s wild places and wild light. Whether you are looking to develop your skills or are already a seasoned photographer looking for The Shot you’ll be able to explore the stunning Highlands and Islands in the company of an expert guide.

    Our photography holidays are guided by passionate and knowledgeable guides, including Colin Prior; one of the foremost landscape photographers in the UK.

    Back to the Wild

    These trips combine practical instruction in wild places as well as relaxed discussion sessions back at the accommodation. With small groups of 8 – 10 people, much of the photography coaching is offered on a one-to-one basis.

    These trips are graded at a reasonable Green 3 and walking is conducted at an easy pace. However, as the terrain can still be rough even at low level in these wild and beautiful locations a reasonable level of fitness and sure-footedness is still required.

    The Bottom Line

    The Bottom Line

    It is difficult to comment since I already have extensive knowledge of all the wild areas of Scotland. The key factor was the opportunity to work and learn with Colin Prior to further develop my photography. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience but cannot truly evaluate Wilderness Scotland's contribution. Perhaps if I had undertaken a trip in, say kayaking where I have no experience, I would be better able to evaluate Wilderness Scotland's product. Don't take this as negative. I would recommend Wilderness Scotland to a visitor from outside Scotland.
