The Winged Isle – A Photographers Paradise

Easter break is almost upon us and like me you may be thinking of going away for a few days.

If you are a photographer an you fancy somewhere in Scotland then I can’t reccommend the Isle of Skye highly enough. It has mountains, seascapes, waterfalls and wildlife in abundance. If you are driving either from Glasgow or Edinburgh airports you will travel through the most amazing scenery and its a challenge not to stop every now and again to take pictures. My favourite is from glasgow through glencoe.

For sunsets look to Elgol and the lighthouse at neist point, for sunrise the walk up to the old man of storr (pictured) is worth the 45 minute slog.

There are loads of accomodation,however, don’t expect your 5 star city centre hotels.

I have stayed in the bosville and the skywalker hostel which were both good and at the different ends of most budgets

Many of the roads are single track and you need to be cafeful as I found on my way to Elgol pictured below.

If you are looking for 1:1 coaching for your photography please contact me at paddymcdougall@aol.com my rates are very reasonable for a half day.

I will be posting my next photography workshop in Glasgow for beginners in the next couple of weeks, if you wish to put your name on the waiting list or have questions around the workshops, please contact me at the email above

Please share any of your experiences of the Isle of Skye in the comments section

Wherever you go over the Easter break I hope you have a great time and get loads of pictures!
