The Small Isles are some of the richest and most abundant marine landscapes of Scotland, just waiting to be captured as you explore them alongside our expert guide Colin Prior.
The Small Isles archipelago comprises the islands of Muck, Eigg, Rum, Canna and Sanday and are located north of the Ardnamurchan peninsula and south of Skye. Around 40 species of birds regularly breed on Muck, and the marine life around the island is particularly rich due to the Gulf Stream, which flows past its shores, creating a rich marine environment that includes a large colony of common seals, dolphins, minke whales and occasionally, basking sharks.
The week will be spent photographing on Muck, which not only has varied landscapes but superb views out to Rum, Eigg and beyond to Skye where sunrise and sunset opportunities will be possible. We’ll island hop to Eigg, Rum, Canna and Coll to capture some of the remotest coastlines in Scotland, made possible by our boat, the MV Lochan.
