Portree, Isle of Skye
Let local guide Harry show you around Skye, looking for some of its incredible wildlife. A bespoke day perfect for those looking for a photograph, or just to enjoy the natural beauty of the island.
Spring and early summer brings a beautiful array of wildflowers, from bluebells to fragile orchids. You can shoot these as macro subjects, or as part of a wider landscape.
“Harry was able to answer all our questions, no matter how obscure about the birds we were watching, plus more!”
If you prefer fauna to flora, then don’t worry there is plenty to choose from. Dippers, and wading birds festoon the coasts and rivers, along with seals and dolphins. Spring and autumn bring a change in the bird life, with migrants either leaving or arriving. Autumn also brings with it the deer rut, and though there is only a small deer population on Skye there is still the opportunity to try and get close to stags roaring at dawn.
A perfect way to practice your photographic creativity can be on some of Skye’s less wild animals such as the highland cows.
