Our sister company presents a 5 day Photo Roadtrip around the North Coast 500

June 4th to June 8th 2020

The Landscape

Trace the rugged coastline of The North Highlands and immerse yourself in some of the most intoxicatingly beautiful scenery in the world. Roughly 500 miles of mountains and moorland, lochs and glens, rocky headlands and golden beaches; every mile of this adventure has the power to ignite your creativity. Three days of incredible photographic opportunities! If you love landscape photography, this Roadtrip truly is for you.

Nailing the shots

The North Coast 500 trip had been on our personal wish list for some time and now we have done it. So what better than to share it once again with four photographers who all want to experience the same thrill? If you would like to learn how to capture the glorious natural wilderness in camera, this is the perfect place to do it. Learn from Andrew, your trainer, how to see like a camera and really do justice to some magnificent scenery. He will teach you how to use the light on the landscape to best advantage; how to compose and frame images which evoke powerful emotion; in fact, everything you need to know to capture the mood and atmosphere of one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets.

Small is beautiful

We’ve chosen to limit numbers to four photographers and here’s why. Firstly, with such a small group, we can travel the Highland roads in comfort in an 8/9 seater vehicle. There will be six of us in total and plenty of room for luggage and camera gear. What’s more, lower numbers offer a higher trainer-to-photographer ratio so you get more time to ask questions, try things out and learn from your experiences in a well-supported environment. And it’s completely your choice. Andrew is there to give you as much or as little help as you need.

At the end of each day

We have selected where to stay along the way with considerable care. Obviously, all accommodation is single occupation with en-suite facilities and the usual modern conveniences – but we also thought you would like variety. We spend our first night in the quaint harbour town of Lybster. Here, we stay in a recently refurbished historic Highland hotel which serves a range of delicious local produce. The following morning, our road trip continues, coming to rest at a cosy lodge situated in a quiet Highland glen on the banks of the River Borgie. This will be our home for the next two nights. And on our fourth and final night, we arrive at one of the top five recommended destinations in the UK: Gairloch. Our hotel is right on the shoreline, offering magnificent views across the loch to Skye and the Hebrides. A landscape photographer’s paradise.

The aim is to give you a combination of comfort and character, with a real taste of the region. That includes a true Highland welcome and a good selection of the local fare. The world, or certainly the North Coast 500, is definitely our oyster 🙂
