Between the mainland mountain masses and the Isle of Skye lies the Applecross Peninsula. This peninsular is a truly amazing place to be with a camera and you really feel that you have escaped to a wilderness that few travel to.

Home to just 238 peo­ple, and accessed by only two roads, this is a haven from the noise and chaos of mod­ern life. The Gael­ic name for the area, (A’ Chom­raich), means The Sanctuary’.

We will be based at the his­toric Tigh an Eilean Hotel, which is locat­ed in the pic­turesque vil­lage of Shiel­d­aig that is the gate­way to the Tor­ri­don Moun­tains. We will explore Loch Tor­ri­don and fur­ther afield includ­ing the banks of Loch Car­ron and Loch Kishorn. The coast­line on this penin­su­la is breath­tak­ing with beach­es such as Cuaig and Big Sand along with the con­trast­ing rock plateaus that jut out into the sea at Fearn­beg and Fearn­more. We will explore the ancient wood­lands near Shiel­d­aig and Apple­cross and vis­it some of the aban­doned croft hous­es along the road that skirts these crys­tal clear waters. A vis­it to the Tor­ri­don Val­ley is a must in order to explore this astound­ing place nestling beneath the tow­er­ing moun­tains of Beinn Eighe and Liathach.

This work­shop offers a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to explore this remote and stun­ning area of the Scot­tish High­lands with views that will inspire any pho­tog­ra­ph­er, regard­less of where in Scot­land they have vis­it­ed before and it will keep entic­ing you back in the future.

You will be spend­ing plen­ty of time out with your cam­era where you will get lots of 1 to 1 tuition that will include both tech­ni­cal aspects of dig­i­tal land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy as well as gain­ing a good eye’ for images along the way. Spaces on the Apple­cross and Shiel­d­aig work­shop will be lim­it­ed to enable us to spend time with you to under­stand your pho­tog­ra­phy and what you would like to learn whilst in these stun­ning sur­round­ings. We are firm believ­ers that we are there for you and spend our entire time on the work­shop with you mak­ing great photographs.

As well as the breath­tak­ing vis­tas over the Inner Sound towards the Cuillin Moun­tains and the view across Loch Tor­ri­don towards the Tor­ri­don Moun­tains, this area offers a vast array of inti­mate stud­ies. As part of this work­shop we want to explore how you see the land­scape and how you can make an image unique to you. We will work with you on more cre­ative and explo­rative ways of inter­pret­ing this beau­ti­ful part of the Scot­tish High­lands so you can head home know­ing you have enjoyed the clas­sic views, but delved deep­er into a new way of seeing.
