The North Coast 500 Gallery

The Ultimate Road Trip on the Scottish coastline north of Inverness. Some 520 miles in length, this beautiful route winds its way through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Scotland. From the west coast beaches with their sweeping, panoramic vistas towards the mountains, to the rugged and beatiful north coast, to the eastern coastline with its rich heritage, castles, archaeology and not forgetting the dramatic coastline.

The North Coast 500 Photography Workshops

I have presented some of my favourite North Coast 500 images in this portfolio – and one of the major attractions of the North Coast 500 route is the wealth of scenery to enjoy and to explore.

Scotland360° Landscape Photography Workshops and Mountain Phototours provide unique opportunities to develop your landscape photography skills in some of the most evocative Landscape, Mountain and Coastal settings along the route.

Why not set aside some time and join me on a photography excursion along the route? Explore beautiful locations, dramatic scenery, panoramic vistas and superb viewpoints, all within easy reach of the roadside?

And if you’re tempted to explore the photographic opportunities from a completely different perspective, why not join me on a photographic expedition into the mountains or coastline of this iconic route.

As a qualified mountain and sea kayak guide leader, I am uniquely placed to provide photography tuition in some of the most beautiful settings along the route.

With 37 Munros and 43 Corbetts (mountains of over 3000 feet and 2,500 feet, respectively), there is a huge range of choice for mountain top vantage points and long distance views. Join me for a day trip to the top of one of the Assynt mountains and see the western seaboard of Sutherland laid out in front of you.
