Join me in March 2025 as I return to the Outer Hebrides for what will be an unforgettable photographic adventure. Off the west coast of Scotland, the Isle of Lewis and Harris is a small picturesque Island located North of Skye in the Outer Hebrides. Despite what the name suggests Lewis and Harris is actually two parts of the one island. Stornoway is its largest town and lies on the east coast.

From the 2nd to the 8th of March, we will explore the diverse and dramatic landscapes that Lewis and Harris has to offer. We will take in the rugged mountains, stunning white beaches, capture the unique thatched black houses at Gearrannan, all the while surrounded by magnificent clear, turquoise seas!

A photographers paradise, this island and its ever changing landscape has such diversity it has to be experienced to fully appreciate its beauty and fascinating history.

We will meet at the at the Harris Hotel on Sun evening 2nd March for a Monday morning start, if you are travelling there yourself. Otherwise, see our pickup options in the next tab.
