Dinner on the Isle of Skye
Meet your host in Inverness and head for your iconic first photo stop - Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle. There they’ll assess your skills and tailor the following days to take them to the next level.
Continue on to the main event – the Isle of Skye. Depending on the time of year you might even get to photograph sunset before checking into your comfortable bunkhouse in the north of the island and enjoying dinner at a local restaurant.
See the Quiraing and capture the sunset
On your Feet
Approx. 4-5 hours of hiking
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
Wake up early to explore the breath-taking scenery of the Quiraing, a mystical landscape of cliffs and pinnacles backed by the sea, caused by an ancient landslip.
Hike to some of the best viewpoints on the island and spend the rest of the morning relaxing or working on your photography skills.
After lunch, set out on an afternoon hike through the wild terrain of Skye before returning to the bunkhouse for the evening.
Storr and Southern Skye
On your Feet
Approx 2–3 hours of hiking
Delicious breakfast and lunch
Get up for a dawn photo workshop, this time at the iconic rock pinnacles of Storr.
Watch as the morning light slowly changes the colour of the towering cliff faces and then hike back to the hostel for breakfast.
Take a drive through southern Skye, stopping to photograph some lesser-known sights, before finally returning home with a memory card full of incredible photographs and a whole suite of new skills.
All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
Your host will meet you at Inverness airport or can alternatively collect you from the centre of the city. If you’re travelling from London you can also take an overnight train and meet the group at 15:15 in Inverness.
At the end of your adventure, you will be dropped back at Inverness Train Station or at the airport (INV) around 15:30. Please do not book anything that departs before 15:00 for trains or buses, or 16:30 for flights. Your host can advise on onward travel arrangements.
