Torridon and Wester Ross is home to some of Scotland’s most impressive scenery, remote beaches, and enchanting woodland. Although, curiously, this area is often overlooked by photographers, Torridon is a wild landscape of mountains, picturesque lochans, and towering Scots pines. It is arguably at its most spectacular during autumn, which is why we have chosen dates to coincide with when we believe is the optimum time of year to visit and photograph this area - we hope you'll witness the highlands ablaze with a rich pallete of warm, autumn colour!

During the workshop, we will be based in Gairloch. To the north are the sweeping turquoise seas of Wester Ross, including Mellon Udrigle beach which affords great views of the distant mountains of Assynt. To the Southwest is the Torridon mountain range, which offers a great backdrop for big vista landscape images. In the centre, we have Loch Maree - known as the Queen of Lochs - which provides stunning views up and down its length with swathes of woodland. There are so many big vistas and locations to explore in this area that it promises to be a busy and productive few days of photography and learning - with emphasis placed on the development of your technical knowhow, creativity, and craft. As well as the 'big picture' we will also focus on smaller, more intimate detail and interest within the landscape.  

During this workshop we will be staying at The Myrtle Bank Hotel - known locally as 'The Myrtle'. The hotel sits on the shores of Gairloch, right in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, and is brilliantly located for exploring the unspoilt natural beauty, rugged scenery, and golden sandy bays of Wester Ross. Many rooms have far-reaching views toward the Isle of Skye and the Outer Hebrides. The hotel is popular for its extensive menu of classic Scottish dishes and locally sourced produce - including freshly caught seafood and highland reared venison. On our workshops, the social side of things is important to us - eating and drinking together and enjoying good conversation and fun. And after your meal, and a good day's photography, why not treat yourself to a local malt whisky or Scottish gin from the hotel's extensive selection! Dinner (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) and breakfast and packed lunch (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) are included in the cost of the workshop.

With a group size of just 8 people, but 2 tutors, you are assured of plenty of attention and bespoke learning and feedback while in the field. For comfort and convenience, transport is via car sharing. We hope you can join us...
