Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye needs no introduction.  It is unquestionably up there with the most incredible photographic destinations in the UK, and quite possibly is the best of them all.  It certainly is the most dramatic, and posesses an iconic status amongst landscape photographers.

Every outdoor photographer living in the UK, and a huge number of those from overseas, has Skye on their bucket list.  It's locations are legendary, from the jaw dropping Old Man of Storr to the rugged expanse of the Quiraing, down to the spectacular coastline at Elgol, these places offer some of the finest natural ingredients for landscape photographs anywhere.  

In February 2025, Adam will be revisiting the Isle of Skye for the first time in 8 years to run a Discovery Tour.  This is an area that Adam knows very well, and has been visiting since way back in 2005.  Starting early afternoon on the first day, this tour spans 4 days and throughout that time will give you the opportunity to shoot Skye's incredible scenery under three sunrises and three sunsets, not to mention the possibility of low winter daylight sunshine in between.  The workshop finishes mid afternoon on the final day to allow you time to begin your journey home.

We will absolutely prioritise the key locations on this trip, providing you with the best opportunity to photograph the amazing natural wonders that Skye is best known for.  As well as the locations already mentioned, we will of course visit Sligachan, Neist Point and the world famous Fairy Pools, and others along the way.

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 has been classified as strenuous.  Lengthy walks are required to reach several locations, the most difficult of which is the walk to the Old Man of Storr which will be approximately one hour walking, much of which is uphill.  We will allocate time so we do not have to rush, but you will need to posess a good level of fitness.

Accommodation

Our base for this Discovery Tour is the Skeabost House Hotel in Skeabost Bridge.  This, beautiful family run hotel has been stunningly refurbished and offers a luxurious base for us to return to each evening.  Each guest will enjoy single occupancy of a beautiful double room.  For more information please check out the hotel website here

Recommendations

"Just a short note to say how much Helen and I enjoyed meeting you on the Aurora Photographic workshop last week. Your presence on the workshop as principal tutor made the trip a complete success. I was particularly impressed with your willingness to help any of the participants, irrespective of their skill level and equally impressive was your patience. It was great to have shared the Icelandic experience with you and I hope that our paths will cross again. "

Neil, Iceland Aurora Workshop

"Just a wee email to thank you once again for a totally brilliant workshop, and for all your patience with my compositional efforts! I learned vastly more from you in the last three days than I have from all the other workshops I've been to combined."

Eric, Northumberland Discovery Tour

"I had an absolutely awesome day with you and learned loads as well as visiting some simply stunning locations that I am itching to visit again with hopefully some more dramatic sea and sky elements. It was great to spend time with you learning and I hope that I can continue to put it into practice in my photography."

Duncan, 1-2-1 Tuition Day

"Excellent drone tutorial with Adam Burton. Covered not just how to fly the drone safely and efficiently, but also how to use the camera on board (Mavic 2). Really great tuition that left me able to take control and start to think about composition - highly recommended."
