Even though Scotland is quite small in total area, we wonít be touring the entire country. On this photo tour you will experience the best of Scotland; Edinburgh, Argyll, Stirling, the Highlands and the Isle of Skye. I have set aside enough time at each location for serious photography. The daily itinerary is not set in stone; it may and will probably change with the weather. However, it is Scotlandís rapidly changing weather that gives it the beautiful and magical lighting, a soft light that seems to be radiating from the land.
