Autumn in Perthshire

Autumn is without doubt on of the best times to be out and about for a passionate landscape photographer and there are few better places to be when this season is in full flow, than in the landscapes of Perthshire in the heart of Scotland.

At this time of year, the days are shorter, the sun is warm and low in the sky, and with the falling temperatures, one of natures best annual displays, the autumn leaves arrive. In Perthshire the forests are vast and occupy the many valley and loch sides. As well as the native Caledonian pine and larch woods, there are huge swaths of birchwoods, not to mention the stars of the autumn show, the oak and beech woodlands. 

In this season the mountains turn a golden glow of warm yellows, oranges and reds and the forest floor becomes a carpet of brightly colours leaves. 

During this workshop we will venture along the river banks, near the waterfalls, onto the loch shores and into the many woodlands and forests and experience the beauty of autumn. Based near Pitlochry, we are ideally positioned to explore River Tummel, River Tay and their associated lochs, Loch Tummel and Loch Tay. We will walk the paths of the famous Queen Elizabeth Forest and Faskally Forest and travel as far south as Kenmore and Killin to the banks of Loch Earn.

Further north we travel east towards the open landscape of Loch Rannoch and the Bridge of Balgie, and no trip to this area would be complete without standing atop the magnificent Garry Bridge looking into the ravine at the spectacular autumn display hugging the banks of the River Garry. Other places that will not be missed will be the Birks of Aberfeldy and the amazing area surrounding The Hermitage.

Often in Scotland it is all too easy to be drawn to the magnificent coastline and mountains regions of the western highlands, but at this time of year Perthshire comes into its own and offers a special place in which to explore autumn at its very best in these beautiful glens. If you want to photograph a part of Scotland without the need to travel to its far northern reaches, then this workshop will be a real eye-opener and you will have memories of the colours of autumn that will stay with you for many years to come.
