Isle of Skye drive of your life

Glencoe Photography goes on tour to the Isle of Skye

I was fortunate enough to be working on Skye, one of my favourite places on the planet, and took a drive north to what was the landscape photography drive of my life. Skye is stunning and is a must for any landscape photographer and whilst the south and west of the island has that classic Scottish Mountain Scenery I insist you take the drive north towards the Trotternish Ridge.

Here is my photo journey heading from Sligachan to Duntulm.

Sligachan Bridge. Trying to get a shot with nobody on the bridge was tricky but good things come to those who wait.

Heading north past Portree and you arrive at Storr which is the southern edge of the Trotternish Ridge. Walking up the recently renovated track gets you one of Skye’s iconic images, Old Man Of Storr.

A few minutes up the A855 is Kilt Rock; a basalt outcrop with a great waterfall. It is a bit tricky to capture but leaning over the hand rail gets you this shot. Watch you don’t drop your camera.

Just after Staffin take the meandering road up through the Quiraing. With some good light you will be rewarded with some of the best scenery in the whole of the UK.

Head further north and you will arrive at Duntulm Castle. It is a bit tricky to shoot and with bright blue sky I decided to bring out the big gun and popped on the Big Stopper.
