Birds, Wildlife and Scenery - Photography and teaching holidays in the Scottish Highlands

The Highlands in Autumn is beautiful, especially after the confines of Lockdown. Fresh air, unlimited space and few people. Better still, no midges - heaven!

This is a magical time of year with trees colouring, the last of the Ospreys heading south, Crested Tits starting to show and Red Squirrels busying their stores for the winter to come. We visit locations across the Highlands of Scotland to see and photograph these iconic species of Birds and Wildlife and the outstanding landscapes they inhabit.

Suitable for Photographers who love wildlife, birders and their partners and people who wish to enjoy the sights, take pictures and be helped with photography and the complexity of camera settings on the latest mirrorless bodies.

We have very small groups and relaxed pace to ensure that guests enjoy the experience and scenery along the way, as well as getting great pictures.

Including full board accommodation at the 4 star Grant Arms Hotel, + airport or rail pickup from Inverness / Aviemore.

Why book with us?

Nick is an expert photographer and teacher - with 30 years experience as a professional advertising and editorial photographer, he has proven ability and the detailed knowledge of the craft of photography and camera settings to help even advanced photographers improve their technique and presentation of their photographs.

From camera setup to image processing, colour management and printing - everyone will take plenty of knowledge away from these trips, together with a set of beautiful pictures of birds, wildlife, and landscape.


You may enjoy a copy of one of these books - there are up to 130 species to see on this trip!


Suitable for Birders and Photographers, experienced or just starting out; there is something in this holiday for everyone. We are not camera snobs and if you wish to bring a bridge camera, a compact, even a phone, we will still show you how to get some very beautiful pictures!

If you have questions, please call or message us, our suggestions can probably save you money on purchases too.

For partners and non-photographers there is so much to see and do in this outstanding region and we always have a spare scope and binoculars.

The trip will be vehicle based, with no strenuous walking or difficult terrain to negotiate.
