The Photographer’s Guide to Scotland – Volume 1: Skye, Glencoe & The Trossachs

Discover some of the best photography locations in Scotland with this detailed guide book.

Scotland is a beautiful country with a varied landscape, ranging from picturesque lochs and glens to stunning beaches and dramatic peaks. It’s a fabulous country for photography and boasts some world-class photo locations.

In this book I’ve covered three of the most photogenic areas – the spectacular Isle of Skye, the iconic area of Glen Coe and the tranquil Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Also included are The Road to The Isles and the Lochalsh area, as many will pass through these on their photographic pilgrimage to Skye.
