Walking In Knoydart: A Photography Love Story

Adventure Consultant, David spent a week walking on Knoydart and nearby islands. This magical wild place is one of our favourite areas to visit. David shared some of his most stunning images from the trip.

At the start of our 2017 season we kicked off a summer of adventures with our classic Wilderness Walking: The Knoydart Peninsula trip. As one of our most popular and most highly reviewed trips I was thrilled to have the chance to go along on this simple yet extraordinary journey to explore iconic mountains and islands on the famous west coast of Scotland.

With a group who quickly gelled and became friends, great weather, superb hospitality and a guide who masterfully inspires both confidence and humour, it was sure to be a memorable experience!

Using a private launch throughout the trip we are able to access both wild islands and remote parts of the mainland for a truly unique itinerary. Scenes like this become a familiar sight!

The waiting party were out in force to welcome us. Red deer hang around the area of our lodge at Doune in Knoydart and you often find them peering in the windows.

David Russell

I discovered the magic of the outdoors while studying Physics at the University of St Andrews. After graduating I decided to follow my dreams of freedom in the hills and rivers, and trained as an outdoor instructor. After several years of guiding with Wilderness Scotland I moved into the role of Adventure Consultant, but I still get out when I can to share my special places with adventurers from all walks of life.
