Glencoe, Rannoch Moor & Glen Etive


There are not many areas in the UK which offer such awe inspiring landscapes such as those found in and around Glencoe. Located in the Highlands of Scotland, it is considered to be one of the most spectacular and beautiful regions of the UK and one of the worlds finest for landscape photography.

Surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery, the glacial valley of Glencoe stretches from Rannoch Moor to Loch Leven. Within this relatively small area, the variety of mountains, lochs and beautiful landscapes is unsurpassed and offers some fabulous mountain and moorland scenery.

As well as photographing the highlights of Glencoe including the impressive Three Sisters, we will also travel to Rannoch Moor, a beautiful and wild landscape with mountains and lochs on either side. We will be visiting the iconic mountain ridge of Buchaille Etive Mor, marking the entrance to Glen Etive, where we will explore beautiful Glen Etive and the many falls along the River Etive. Lochan Urr is a particularly lovely loch, with delightful views of the surrounding mountain scenery reflected in its waters.

Our accommodation for this workshop will be at the comfortable and ideally located Loch Leven Hotel, beautifully situated on the bank of Loch Leven and providing the perfect base.

We have timed our workshop for early Spring and as such, we hope to be able to photograph plenty of snow capped mountains during our visit. This time of year also offers us the potential of some superb light for landscape photography with the sun low in the sky throughout the day, adding to the wonderful mood of the area.

We will show you how to prepare for the best light and capture the mood of this stunning highland location. As well as helping you to master exposure and composition, you will also be able to experiment with long exposures with the use of filters

There will be the chance to receive constructive feedback on your images in our group critique sessions, plus plenty of time to discuss photographic techniques over dinner.

This 3 day Glencoe workshop will offer you numerous opportunities to capture the majestic beauty of the highlands of Scotland. Come and join us and experience the grandeur of Glencoe, the rugged remoteness of Rannoch Moor and the iconic mountain views of Buachaille Etive Mor. This is one workshop not to miss.
