Scotland Photography of Eastern Highlands
The Eastern Highlands are dominated by the Cairngorms, Grampians and Lochnagar with Aberdeenshire accommodating a magnificent collection of historic Castles and Tower Houses. The East coast and the Moray Firth ,although basically flat inland , has dramatic coastal scenery enlivened by the gannetry at Troup Head and porpoise sightings. Caithness and Sutherland too have dramatic coasts with free- standing Stacs at Duncansby Head ,Stoer Point,and Sandwood Bay.
Scotland Photography of Beaches
The beaches in the far north and west coasts are unspoilt and as fine as any in the world. Below the Great Glen ,Ben Nevis ,the Mamores and Grey Corries dominate, with the Glen Coe mountains being the most evocative and mysterious. The combination of mountain, glen and sea lochs make the west of Scotland a very special landscape. The Cuillin ridge on the Isle of Skye provides the highest mountaineering challenge in Britain with only the Arran ridges matching it's wonderful proximity to the ocean. The weather systems, endemic to our islands location, provide the basis for the great variety of colours in our landscape, ever changing , even from hour to hour. To capture the various moods of our climate is part of the challenge for every landscape photographer.
