THE ARDNAMURCHAN PENINSULA

12th - 16th November, 2024 - with Michael Pilkington FRPS and Mark Lawrence - Scotland - £1,795.00 (£359.00 Deposit) - Now Booking

A little explored area with vast skies, a stunning coastline with spectacular views towards Inner Isles and gnarled ancient oak woodlands, there is a wonderful variety of locations to both tempt and excite you.

Ard­na­mur­chan is prob­a­bly the most remote of the West High­land Penin­su­las and is home to the most west­er­ly point on the British main­land. It is a land­scape formed by vol­canic activ­i­ty and the geol­o­gy is regard­ed as inter­na­tion­al­ly impor­tant. Per­haps because of its remote­ness it remains a beau­ti­ful and peace­ful land­scape fea­tur­ing ancient oak wood­lands, lochs and beaches.

Dur­ing this work­shop we will explore the coast and wood­land exten­sive­ly, allow­ing time to take in both the spec­tac­u­lar views towards the inner isles and the more seclud­ed bays with fas­ci­nat­ing inter­tidal areas. We will vis­it the ancient wood­lands that flank Loch Sunart and take in lochs with their atten­dant cas­tles too. The low sun at this time of year along with short­er days means the con­di­tions are often spec­tac­u­lar with tran­sient, soft light.

There are only a few ways onto the penin­su­la, via the Cor­ran Fer­ry cross­ing Loch Linnhe at the base of Glen­coe, to the north at Glen­finnan and at Lochailort on the road to Mal­laig. There are two huge glacial-cut lochs, Loch Shiel and Loch Sunart, nes­tled in the land­scape and each are sur­round­ed by a rich and diverse vari­ety of wood­lands. Beach­es have beau­ti­ful names like the Singing Sands and Samala­man Bay that boast white sands that look out over the Inner Isles of Eigg, Rum and Muck to the south­ern tip of the Isle of Skye.

One of the aims of this work­shop is to allow time to delve deep­er into this amaz­ing penin­su­la, its won­der­ful land­scape and what it means to you. We will active­ly encour­age cre­ativ­i­ty and give free­dom for you to take your time to devel­op your own unique images from this spe­cial land­scape, includ­ing time for image review to make sure you get the best from your time in Ardnamurchan.

This area of Scot­land is often over­looked as peo­ple head for Malliag en-route fur­ther west to the islands or head north up the Great Glen. If you want to pho­to­graph a stag­ger­ing land­scape that few have seen with all the grandeur of the far west­ern high­lands, then Ard­na­mur­chan is a must.

For this work­shop you will be in the capa­ble hands of your lead­ers who know both the area and land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy very well. They will be avail­able to pro­vide plen­ty of hands-on 121 tuition to help you get the most from this pho­tog­ra­phers’ paradise.
