Approximately - Loading...

Our Knoydart photography tour will take place with Ben Osborne in June 2022. The Knoydart Peninsula is a vast tract of wild land on the west coast of Scotland with few people, virtually no roads and some of the most impressive scenery in the British Isles. There is nowhere else in Britain quite like it.

Doune Bay is on the far western end of this peninsula. There are no roads, no cars. It is a place where you arrive and leave by sea and where you immediately feel relaxed. It is also a superb base for this Scotland photography tour with an inspiring variety of landscape and wildlife, a convivial atmosphere and some of the best food on the west coast of Scotland.

In front of you lies a tiny golden beach with lots of possibilities for intimate landscapes; boulders sculpted by the sea and worn smooth by the wind and rain; patterns in the sand; shells scattered by the receding tide. Sunsets cast golden light onto the wet rocks and gently moving waves. Across the sea lie islands and mountains, silhouetted shapes at sunset, hazy patchworks of colour and light during the day. Distant and inviting.

Knoydart Photography Tour - Knoydart Peninsula Landscape Photography

The Knoydart Peninsula is a vast tract of wild land on the west coast of Scotland with few people, virtually no roads and some of the most impressive scenery in the British Isles. There is nowhere else in Britain quite like it.

Doune Bay is on the far western end of this peninsula. There are no roads, no cars. It is a place where you arrive and leave by sea and where you immediately feel relaxed. It is also a superb base for this Scotland photography tour with an inspiring variety of landscape and wildlife, a convivial atmosphere and some of the best food on the west coast of Scotland.

In front of you lies a tiny golden beach with lots of possibilities for intimate landscapes; boulders sculpted by the sea and worn smooth by the wind and rain; patterns in the sand; shells scattered by the receding tide. Sunsets cast golden light onto the wet rocks and gently moving waves. Across the sea lie islands and mountains, silhouetted shapes at sunset, hazy patchworks of colour and light during the day. Distant and inviting.

These remote landscapes - Rhum, Eigg, Canna, Skye, the Cuillins, Loch Scavaig, Loch Nevis, Loch Hourn - are all accessible aboard the “Mary Doune”, a speedy and powerful motor launch, skippered by Andy Tibbetts who has lived at Doune for many years and always provides a very warm welcome backed up by a wealth of local knowledge. Photographic highlights include not only the dramatic landscapes, on previous visits we have spent time with dozens of dolphins, scores of seabirds and have even managed to photograph Minke whales and basking sharks. Nearer to shore, wildlife highlights might include the common seals, red deer or, if we are very lucky, the chance to photograph otters in a nearby bay. 

We will spend four days exploring the islands by boat and two days studying the more intimate landscapes around Doune. On one of the “Doune” days, we will spend some time reviewing, sharing and discussing images.

Every evening we return to Doune where we stay in a Scandinavian style lodge. This timber-framed building is warm and comfortable and has a communal area where we can relax and discuss the day’s experiences and present slide shows or workshops. The style of accommodation is basic, with shared facilities, but our hosts are incredibly welcoming and it is the kind of place where you immediately feel at home. Please click on the accommodation tab to find a link to the accommodation.

To round the day off we stroll over the short machair turf to the cosy restaurant where you will be presented with stunning meals (while keeping an eye out for sunsets through the west facing windows – and, by the way, it is the kind of place where it is OK to interrupt meals for sunset photography !).
