Getting to the Workshop

Skye is situated in the far north west of Scotland. Due to the nature of the remoteness of parts of the North West of Scotland, transportation links are sparse.

Pickup from Inverness Airport Available

I can pick you up at Inverness Airport on the day the trip commences. Please arrive at Inverness Airport no later than 2pm on the day the trip commences, as it is a 3 and a half hour drive to our destination on Skye.

Returning from the workshop to the Airport

Please be aware we will leave the hotel no later than 10am and arrive in Inverness at approximately 2pm. Please arrange your connections to coincide with this arrival time.

Driving from Glasgow, Edinburgh or Inverness

Another alternative is to coincide your Skye workshop with a tour around the north west of Scotland. There is much to see and you could easily spend an additional week or two here. If this is an option, then I would recommend hiring a car and ariving at Inverness Airport. Driving times from Glasgow and Edinburgh are very long - somewhere between 5 and 7 hours. The landscape is mountainous, with lots of single track roads, so traveling takes a lot longer than you may anticipate.

Trip Details

Start/Finish: The course starts at 6pm on Monday and finishes at 9am on Saturday after breakfast.
Deposit: £300 per person
Group size: Maximum 4 photographers
Where we stay: Glen View Hotel, Culnacnoc by Staffin, Skye

Fitness Level

BootBootBoot

Moderate / occasionally high grading.

Most locations involve a short walk from the car, but two locations require you to be able to walk up hill on uneven and rocky ground for an hour or more with a packpack and your tripod.

Equipment Needed

Film or Digital SLR camera; tripod; neutral density graduated filters

This trip has been set up for a very small exclusive number of photographers (4). We will have sole use of the hotel for our duration, making for a very comfortable and concentrated stay.

With the winter sun being so low in the sky for the entire day, we will take advantage of this by exploring some of the surrounding landscapes of Skye.

11:00 - 4:00pm

Photo critique and digital editing tutorials back at the hotel.

7:00 - 9:00pm
