Picture this, Scotland in miniature, Mountains and Coastline both Highland and Lowland in nature thrown in and geology to die for. That is the Isle of Arran. Situated just a few miles off the Ayrshire coast, and a stone’s throw from Glasgow, you can experience thrilling mountain walks, fabulous rocky shoreline, and magnificent Glens all within a 56 mile long ‘ring road’ that encircles the island.

This November join Mark Littlejohn and myself for a workshop/tour of this fantastic island, one that has until now been sadly neglected by the UK Landscape Photography scene, in our opinion.

On Friday 3rd November we’ll arrive on the Island by ferry at around midday, meet in the main town of Brodick and immediately set about photographing this wonderful island before checking in to our hotel after sunset.

Our base will be The Corrie Hotel, for 2 nights, close to the wonderful Glen Sannox and the eratics of Pirate’s Cove. You will have your own Double or Twin Room, recently refurbished, with breakfast included.

On Saturday and Sunday, after an early start we’ll explore the island in two vehicles giving ourselves options if required. Depending on weather we’ll aim to complete a walk taking us to the heart of the Northern Hills and treat ourselves to easily accessible coast as well as the odd bit that might require a little walk. In addition to this there are, amongst other things, standing stones and woodland to play with.

After sunset on the Sunday we’ll aim to catch the last Ferry back to the mainland and departure home.

  • Transportation on Arran itself (or from Penrith early on Friday 3rd)
