Last week my boyfriend and I visited Scotland – it’s the second time we’ve been to Scotland together but last time we visited Edinburgh for a festive city break, so this time we decided we needed to explore the highlands! We spent 6 days driving around this stunning country (covering over 1000 miles!) – we based ourselves in Inverness for 3 nights, Oban for 1 night and Fort William for the final night in the shadow of Ben Nevis. As I took so many photos of the stunning landscapes, I’m going to share separate posts for each day of our trip. This photography blog may be morphing into a travel blog!
After arriving in Inverness we had some time to explore the local area, so we drove around Loch Ness. I had no idea quite how large it was, the Loch Ness Experience taught us that it is actually as deep as the height of the Shard in London in some places – plenty of spots for the monster to hide.
We drove along the A82 which runs along one side of the loch, and back round on the B roads which lead back to Inverness on the other side – but are a much more dramatic drive as you can see from the photos below!
Urquhart Castle is located on the side of the loch, and this was the view on a very murky afternoon when you could only just make out the other side of the loch.
Couldn’t resist a bit of fun with photoshop on this one, my own shot of Nessie…
These are some of the views we were treated to on the B road back to the city. It wasn’t great photography weather and I struggled to capture the atmosphere and to get the right lighting, something for me to work on!
Photos from day 2 coming soon!
