Isle of Skye Photo Tour #2

Lone Tree - The now famous lone Ash tree on the Quiraing

I just love the Isle of Skye, and was lucky enough to go on my second photo tour here this year with my good friends Dave Holder and Steve Cheetham. We had been up earlier this year and it was still very much in the grips of winter, so a trip back early October was needed to get the different conditions.

Once again we stayed with our now ‘Skye home from home’ the Taigh Ailean Hotel, and once again they were the best, can’t recommend them enough.

Being my second time here just for photography I had a better idea of what I wanted to capture, and I was looking forward to seeing some more of the island. The weather was its normal chargeable self, that’s half the fun of it though. As a photographer on the Isle of Skye you need to take your time, the conditions and light will change as often as you check your settings. Here are just a few of my captures.

The Quiraing (pronounced as Karang) is an amazing area of Skye, we were lucky enough to be there on a stunning morning.

Neist Point, a very well photographed place on Skye, sadly we did not get the sunset we were hoping for.

Fairy Pools, this place is now a tourist mecca on Skye, but if you climb high enough you can escape the crowds and get views like this.

Talisker Bay, none of us had ventured down here before? Wow we had been missing a stunning location.

Loch Coruisk, is a loch that is almost completely surrounded by the Cullins. You can reach it by going over the Cullins, walking around the bay from Elgol, or by boat.

Loch Coruisk - You either have to take a long walk, or a boat to get here.

    Hi there! Gorgeous photos! I’m actually heading to Isle of Skye early August and was, of course, planning on hiking Quiraing. I definitely wanted to get a shot of that lone ash tree though and I have no clue how to get to it! Is it along the walking routes suggested by walkinghighlands? Or off the track a bit, and if so at which point? Any tips/info would be greatly appreciated 🙂
