Across to Eigg on the MV Sheerwater with my Wilderness Scotland group yesterday. The seas were a wee touch rough, but sighting this ship sailing past us was incredible.

Castle Fraser, Aberdeenshire. . The five-storey Z-plan castle was begun in 1575 by the 6th Laird of Fraser on the basis of an much older tower, and was completed in 1636. In the first half of the 19th century the castle was entirely reconstructed. Today the National Trust for Scotland is taking care of the castle. A little reminder for all Outlander Fans: This is not the home of Jamie Fraser but absolutely worth to visit. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 . . #fortheloveofscotland #nationaltrustforscotland #castlefraser #castles_oftheworld #fiftyshades_of_history #explorescotland #loves_scotland #scotland #scotlandlover #scotland_greatshots #monumental_world #visitscotland #igscotland #ig_Scotland #icu_scotland #instascotland #loves_united_castle #scotland_insta #traveling_scotland #traveling_uk #scotlandexplore #thisisscotland #wonderlustscotland #unlimitedscotland #photosofbritain #hiddenscotland #castlesofscotland #earthpix #tlpicks #scotlandscenery

Holyrood Abbey, Edinburgh. . The Augustinian Abbey of Holyrood was founded by David I in 1128 as a daughter-house of Merton Priory (Surrey). By the 15th century the abbey was increasingly being used as a royal residence – James II was born there in 1430 - and by the time of the Protestant Reformation (1560) much of the monastic precinct had been subsumed into the embryonic Palace of Holyroodhouse. . . At the Reformation the east end of the church became redundant (it was demolished in 1570), whilst the nave continued in use as the parish church of Canongate; Charles I was crowned therein in 1633. In 1687 the parishioners relocated to a new church in Canongate to enable James VII to convert the nave into the Chapel Royal of the revived Order of the Thistle. It was wrecked the following year by a mob, who destroyed the fittings, and broke into the royal vault. Following misguided repairs in 1758 the roof collapsed ten years later. . #holyroodabbey #historicscotland #edinburgh #myedinburgh #thisisedinburgh #instaedinburgh #loveedinburgh #igersedinburgh #explorescotland #loves_scotland #lovescotland #monumental_world #visitscotland #edinburghstory #scotland #scotlandlover #scotland_greatshots #instascotland #insta_scotland #igscotland #ig_scotland #icu_scotland #scotland_insta #traveling_uk #vd_gothika #wonderlustscotland #hiddenscotland #traveling_scotland #earthpix #tlpicks

Two POVs, same coast: Trotternish peninsula! 🌊 Our road tip has brought us to the northen part of the Isle of Skye with dramatic cliffs, peculiar rock formations such as Kilt rock, that says everything with just its name (and yes of course there's a legend about it!) and why not, also a 55m waterfall that drops in the sea... Because it's Skye, and everything here looks more striking and impressive than everywhere else. Bonus point: THE SUN! ☀️ Mr. Flaming said: once is happenstance, two is coincidence, tree... is a pattern!

is this hogwarts? 🏰 _ this is the inner courtyard of the #edinburgh university‘s new college with the tower of the hub peeking through in the background in perfect symmetry. it isn‘t exactly that 'new' as it opened its doors originally in 1846 but who wouldn’t want to study in this place?! _ i should have asked @starhamburg to model for me to simply give you a scale of this stunning place but maybe you can spot the guard in the corner of the picture. 😏

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Learn Your Lochs 🤘🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Location📍: Loch Maree Run By: @shot_by_tom Tag: #scotlandscenery #learnyourlochs Swipe to see more of this beautiful place 👉 . If you haven’t noticed already this week we are starting a brand new chapter for @Scotlandscenery. This is something we have been working towards for a while now and it is finally time to start sharing it all with you! . We have a whole new weekly schedule lined up. With lots of different new features showcasing the best Scotland had to offer! We can not wait to show you all what we have install and where this is all heading! 🥳 . Today and EVERY Thursday from now on we will be helping you discover each and every Loch Scotland has to offer! . Hidden away deep in the untouched parts of the highlands is Loch Maree. The loch is home to five large wooded islands (and over sixty smaller ones), made special by the presence of their own little lakelets. Maree is said to be the most beautiful of the Highland lochs, and it has a special history steeped in myths and legends. . Back in the day, locals believed that the waters of Loch Maree had curative abilities. They said that people submerged in it would be cured of lunacy. To this day, people also tell stories about Loch Maree’s very own eel-like sea monster, muc-sheilch. Perhaps because it really is magical or perhaps because she loved the Scottish Highlands (and rightly so), Queen Victoria visited here in 1877. The waterfall which feeds the loch on its south side is thereafter named Victoria Falls. .

Shout out to a fellow photographer who along with his partner and their dog, were the only people I saw on top Ben A’an last week at sunrise. . Poor guy had lent a few lenses to friends and so was left shooting sunrise with a 300mm! While most of the time I shoot alone, I really enjoy getting to shoot with other people and learn from them. Not that I’ll be shooting my sunrises with a 300mm in future 😂

A special #tbt to answer a question that was raised during my trip... “Why do cows in Scotland have hair?” Well, the Highland cattle are specially breed and their hair is to get through the hard winters in Scotland. They’re very gentle (as you can see). I know I’ve seen awesome things during this trip, but the “Heilan coo” made to the top of my list 🐮 #scotland_lover #scotlandroadtrip #highlandcow #scotlandexplore #nofilter #scotland #scotland_ig #scotlandhighlands #scotlandsites #scotlandlove #scotlandlover #unlimitedscotland #ilovescotland #travelscotland #beautifulscotland #historicscotland #scotlandscenery #scotlandtravel #scotlandtrip #scotlandshots #outandaboutscotland #igscotland #scotlandphotography #discoverscotland #scotland_greatshots #scotland_insta #somewhereinscotland #scotlandbeauty #wonderlustscotland

Really starting to miss Scotland 🐑 I spent 3 weeks in this beautiful country a while back and still feel the need to go back because there is so much more to see 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Thinking about this past trip yesterday, I had to scroll through some old photos that I never got around to editing. This photo in particular is important to me. Back in Scotland I tried to edit this photo and I just couldn’t figure it out, I got frustrated and then just put it aside to never look at again. Now 4 months later I decided to give it another chance since I’ve learnt a lot more about photography and editing since then. I’m really happy with the way it turned out and I’m going to use this as a reminder to never give up just because you can’t do something in the moment. We’re constantly learning new things and improving every single day and it never hurts to go back and give something another chance. This December marks 1 year since I got my first camera. I can’t believe what I’ve been able to accomplish with my photography so far. This past year I’ve been able to attend 2 photography retreats, got hired for 2 photo gigs and have been able to start selling prints. I’m so grateful for these opportunities and for everyone who follows along 🙏🏼 I can’t wait to see where photography takes me from here!! Do any other photographers out there love going back and working on past photos? 🙋🏻‍♂️

The Waverly 🚢 The last sea going paddle steamer in the world! A trip on board the waverly is so special! You can take a trip to visit the engines or chill out on deck with a drink from the bar 🥂 During the summer months it has a great itinery visiting different stops down the Clyde or sailing around Ailsa Craig (a personal favourite). Unfortunately it had to be withdrawn from service this summer due to a boiler fault. They are currently raising money to cover the cost of this, to enable it the Wavelry to sail once again 💙 #thewaverly #isleofbute #sharebute #abplace2b #visitbute #scotlandshots #scotshots #lovescotland #scotlandisnow #wonderlustscotland #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #unlimitedscotland #thisisscotland #igscotland #explore_scotland_ #scotexplore #scotlandmagazine #instascotland #travellingscotland #somewhereinscotland #scotlandlove #simplyscotland #yourscotland #scotlandsites #raw_uk

I stand on the shore of the loch and try my damndest not to burst out laughing to hide the incredulity that overwhelms me for that’s how ridiculous the view I’m facing registers in my mind. ⠀ The ship with sails made of starlight is tied up to a deserted pier, its hull showing the bite marks of the rust demons. ⠀ Suddenly I catch some movement in the periphery of my vision and turn my gaze to the mountains, but the lazy giants are hiding behind the clouds they’ve pulled down from the sky. How convenient. I smirk. ⠀ “I don’t believe this for a second,” I say, nodding towards the supposedly rusty vessel with the ironic name. ⠀ There’s movement again somewhere beyond the limits of my vision and a low rumble of a laughter that reminds me of warm honey and molten amber rolls across the mountains and through me. That’s answer enough.

Soooooo this is a story all about how my life got..... wait no its not! Its a story about when you set your alarm to get up early for sunrise and you wonder about whether you should go, or stay in your big cosy bed..... always go! I headed for the trossachs with no real idea of what spit to hit, as I passed the cut off for aberfoyle I looked in the rear view mirror and the sun was fast approaching so pulled into loch rusky, the water was choppy and I questioned my decision making before the sky lit up and I got a brief moment of calm. I'm a very reactive person with photogrpahy and like to get to loads of different places but this time I just waited for things to get better... it paid off! • • #lochrusky #loves_scotland #visitscotland #icu_scotland #unlimitedscotland #lensbible #visualart #lensbible  #scotlandisamazing #scotlandisnow  #scotlands_greatshots #scotlandsbeauty #thescottishcollective #insta_scotland #ig_scotland #scotland_ig #potd #insta_sss #wonderlustscotland #thisisscotland #visualsofscotland #outandaboutscotland  #moody_tones #scenery #followmetoscotland #exploretocreate #liveforthestory #outandaboutscotland #uk_greatshots #agameoftones #hiddenscotland

Wee wander around a local castle (there are a lot of them nearby!) a few weeks ago. Brief burst of light and then that was that...difficult shot as I liked the comp but moving to the right to exclude the sun was much weaker compositionally.
