When it comes to Landscape photography there can't be many countries with as many stunning vistas as Scotland, from the mountainous highlands to the forested lowlands, stunning costal seascapes and deserted island paradises, Scotland really is a landscape photographers dream. All helped by the dramatic weather that can sweep in from the north providing Icy snow scenes or dramatic stormy skies.

Throw in some amazing wildlife, the deer herds or Red squirrels known to many or the elusive pine martin or Scottish wildcat, and some of the most spectacular birds of prey with Golden and white tailed eagles both possible as well as leking Capercaillie or Black grouse, wildlife enthusiasts will also find something to impress.

But it isn't all wilderness, the historical cities, buildings and castles that are dotted around the country can create some superb photographic subjects, and the people in these populated areas can be unique and wonderful to try to capture (in a photographic sense).

Visiting one of the many sporting or social events, from highland games to skiing in the Cairngorms' will open a world of photographic opportunities that are only available in Scotland, round (although it is possibly best to avoid the "old firm" derby football games, Celtic versus Rangers).

But it isn't all about photography in Scotland the people are warm and often have an interesting Story to tell, and there is nothing quite like an evening in one of the many country pubs found in Scotland.
