Join us for a week of photography and Highland hospitality in our Victorian hunting lodge set among 43,000 acres of pristine wilderness.
With otters playing in the waters around the estate and eagles soaring in the skies above, this is a perfect trip for both wildlife and landscape photographers.
The week worked seamlessly, the accommodation, food and variety of photo opportunities were first class, not to mention the help and advice we received from the three of you.
The Outer Hebrides are the final frontier of the UK wilderness. Although this is the largest island in the British Isles, it is compact enough to allow us to explore all corners in a few days. The weather-beaten Atlantic coast hides some of the world’s most spectacular beaches and rock formations. The 5,000 year old stone circles stand sentinel and the photogenic abandoned cottages which litter the island all provide a diversity of subjects.
We’ll be exploring everything these islands have to offer, taking in classic viewpoints as well as our favourite secret locations.
Meet your hosts...
Marcus has led several groups to the island and ensures everyone is in the right place at the right time. Together with James and Harry, he guarantees everyone captures the breathtaking landscapes that Harris and Lewis are known for.
James will be demonstrating how to cheat at snooker, and can often be found relaxing in front of the open fire in the drawing room, regaling a host of his true life stories, some of which actually happened.
Harry will be in charge of stalking the otters and eagles, ensuring everyone gets close encounters with the wildlife which is in abundance around the lodge and around the island.
I’ve never felt so relaxed on a photography holiday before, or eaten so well!
The beaches are like something from the Caribbean, I never knew we had such beautiful places in the UK.
The staff at the lodge looked after us so well, it was a real home from home.
