Join me for a fabulous photography tour and workshop of beautiful Glencoe in Scotland during the winter. The tour is centred in the very heart of Glencoe where our base is in the village of Ballachulish. We will use our base to photograph the stunning mountain scenery of Glencoe as well as the surrounding Scottish Highlands landscape and lochs.
Scotland in winter is a magical place, and nowhere is the magic of the Scottish Highlands more visible than in Glencoe.
During January, the area around Glencoe will be transformed into a winter wonderland. Snow will be on the high peaks and with any luck will be on the ground around Rannoch Moor.
Our stay is based in the village of Ballachulish on the banks of Loch Leven. Double rooms are provided with breakfast.
During January the average time of sunrise is 0850am whilst sunset is around 400pm. During our photo tour, we will have breakfast before heading out to catch the sunrise.
After sunrise, we continue until lunchtime either into the landscape or in woodland before breaking for lunch.
In the afternoon, we’ll head back out again this time concentrating on photographing the landscapes. The day will finish with sunset then we’ll head back to our base to eat dinner in the evening.
Highlights of the photo tour, other than the endless mountainous scenery, will be Rannoch Moor, Buchaille Etive Mor, Lochan na h-Achlaise and the Black Mount as well as other places such as Castle Stalker and possibly up to the Fort William area.
