Join Adam on a Discovery Tour to one of Scotland's most spectacular locations.  In October 2025, Adam will be returning north of the border to guide a small group to photograph the fabulous locations around Glencoe and the West Highlands.

The scenery in this area barely needs an introduction, and is one of the reasons why Scotland is currently high on many landscape photographers wishlists the world over.  We will be visiting romantic castle ruins, expansive lochs and fast flowing rivers, all with the amazing backdrop of those dramatic Highlands mountains.  Our tour will take in Kilchurn Castle, the Pass of Glencoe and Rannoch Moor plus many more of the incredible locations found in this part of the Highlands.  To provide more time to fully explore each location, this tour will run over 5 days.

To give you the greatest chance of photographing these amazing locations in the best available light, the itinerary has been designed to include four sunrises and four sunsets.  We will kick off mid afternoon on the first day, where, after checking in to your room we will head straight out to shoot our first sunset.  Each day thereafter we will aim to be shooting from sunrise through to sunset, returning to the hotel after sunrise for breakfast before heading out again for the rest of the day, returning to our accommodation after sunset.  On the final day we will shoot sunrise and then the tour will finish after breakfast, giving you ample daylight hours to make the long journey home.

With a maximum group number of only four participants, our chosen locations will be uncrowded ensuring everybody has access to shoot that special viewpoint.  Adam will encourage you to fully explore each location to find your own viewpoints and compositions, while helping you capture beautiful landscape photographs.

Our tours are aimed at everybody, from beginners looking for advice and encouragement through to experienced photographers wishing only to be guided to locations.  With such a small group, you can be assured of Adam’s attention, support and feedback throughout each location we visit.

Please note: This tour requires a moderate level of fitness.  Although most locations can be accessed via short walks, some locations require walks of up to 30 minutes.

Accommodation

Our base for this Discovery Tour will be the Bridge of Orchy Hotel.  Located in a rural setting close to Loch Tulla, the four star Bridge of Orchy Hotel is the ideal location from which to explore this part of the Highlands.  Guests will enjoy single occupancy of a comfortable en suite bedroom.  For more information please check out the hotel website.

  • Digital camera, lenses and memory cards
  • Spare batteries 
  • Tripod
  • Filters (a set of Kase filters will be available for you to use throughout the workshop should you require them)

Recommendations

"In June 2022 I did a 1-2-1 tuition day with Adam on Dartmoor, a fabulous part of Devon. I had a fantastic day with Adam visiting a number of locations to get the best from such a lovely area. His professionalism, skill and location knowledge is excellent and will ensure you always get the best from the day. His knowledge of photography is fantastic and on top of that he really is a fabulous guy to spend a wonderful day with. I would highly recommend Adam either for a workshop or a 1-2-1 tuition day; he will ensure you get the best experience from the day and you will feel after looking at the images you have captured something to be proud of."

Phil, 1-2-1 Tuition Day

"Thanks very much for your guidance, care and attention over the few days last week and for your eternal optimism about the weather !!"

Len, West Cornwall Discovery Tour

"As you know, I said that I hope to get one photo per day that I regard as "great". Well, on this workshop, I have achieved one photo every location we stopped in. That's 13 "great" shots for me. That's down to your knowledge, experience and guidance at each location. This is one of the best workshops I have attended and that's down to you. Your coaching and support was great. Just watching you create your own images was educational. I will definitely try to attend some of your other workshops."

Mark, Anglesey & Snowdonia Discovery Tour (2023)

"I must confess as someone who is naturally quite shy, I was a little apprehensive about going out for a whole day 1-2-1 with someone I didn't know. Within minutes of meeting up with Adam, he had put me at ease and I was completely relaxed and looking forward to the day ahead. We had a full itinerary of locations near my home, which at the end of the day even when I knew them I was able to look at with a fresh and more critical eye. Having got a drone for Christmas and having only a vague understanding of how to use it, Adam quickly got me up to speed with all the flight and camera controls. We were both surprised at how capable my drone was, and as a result it was not long before I was literally flying it off a cliff across open water to take pictures looking back at the shore. I am now much more confident using my drone and am really looking forward to exploring new and old locations to use it and see things with a completely different perspective. Do not think twice about booking a workshop with Adam, you will not regret it."
