πŸŒŒπŸ”­ I mentioned the other day how clear the sky is where I live on the West Coast. I was talking to a friend the other day and hopefully going to plan a night trip to the Galloway Forest on the border of Ayrshire & Dumfries and Galloway. The Galloway Forest is one of the UK’s Dark Sky Sites and has an observatory just outside the forest in Dalmellington, Ayrshire. On a clear night the Milky Way can be seen with the naked eye - not just in a long exposure. Has anyone been to any Dark Sky Sites? πŸŒŒπŸ”­ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #starsatnight #star #stars #longexposure #longexposures #slowshutter #slowshutters #slowshutterspeed #longexposure_shots #longexposureoftheday #longexposureshots #longexposurephotography #longexposure_world #slowshutters #slowshutterphotography #uk_shooters #cloudsatnight
Fire in the sky over Loch Etive at Bonawe. I’ve had house guests for two weeks and cabin fever has seriously set in. Off to the Isle of Rum on Monday though.

Castle views of the city 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
The Auld Kirk in Alloway, the location for Robert Burns’ epic, Tam o’ Shanter. I know one person that can recite the whole thing off by heart - quite a feat. Very useful if you ever get asked to help out at a Burns Supper!
And the river was deep I didn't falter When the mountain was high I still believed RIP Aretha Franklin πŸ’œ . Craigmillar Castle is awesome, I particularly love these two trees at the entrance...🌳🏰🌳 . #craigmillarcastle #maryqueenofscots #historicscotland #visitscotland #explore_scotland_ #explore_britain_ #GloriousBritain #1ukshot #capturingbritain #britains_talent #bbcbritain #bbctravel #ukpotd #genuinebritain #edinburgh #scotland
My escape. 5 minutes drive from home is the rather unfortunately named Fannyside Road, a hidden gem well known by locals that winds from Abronhill, near Cumbernauld, over to connect onto the Slamannan Road to the south, crossing a seemingly endless swathe of heather-topped peatland. It's my route of choice when doing the last gasp drive to get my daughter to sleep, as it proved to be again tonight. As dusk was melting into the darkness of night we reached the highest point with the cloud so low it seemed to brush the tops of the larch trees in the distant woods. There was a small crack under this blanket to the north east which was still welcoming the final echoes of daylight, silhouetting the very distant Trossachs and Ochils. It transports you back in time, giving the illusion of solitude in one of the more densely populated parts of Scotland. No wonder they film Outlander here! I love this light and, though I know I have some way to go in terms of technique and equipment to get it right, I couldn't resist jumping out to capture this. πŸ’™πŸ΄σ §σ ’σ ³σ £σ ΄σ ΏπŸ’™ . . #peatland #dusk #moody #cumbernauld #northlanarkshire #scotland #fannysideloch #fannysideroad #outlander #visitscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandshots #scotshots #scotlandincredible #lovescotland #ig_cameras_united #icu_scotland #explore_scotland_ #beautifulScotland #scotland_greatshots #instascotland #ig_scotland #scotlandmagazine #scotlandisnow #scotlandsbeauty #instascotland #scotland_lover
The view down Loch Maree from the other end of the loch. I often see photos that have been taken looking down to Loch Maree from Glen Docherty. Well, it's just as pretty a view looking down to Loch Maree towards Glen Docherty! This loch has so much myth and mystery about it. From Viking Prince and Princesses to the islands having their own micro-climate and being classed as rainforest. Yes - really!! And who wouldn't want to live in that house at Tollie Farm?! 😍 . . . . . #LochMaree #Highlands #Scotland #Canon700D #canon_photos #VisitScotland #ScotSpirit #LoveScotland #ig_scotland   #icu_scotland #HiddenScotland #OSMAPS #GetOutside #Loves_Scotland #scottishcollective   #ExploreToCreate #VisualsOfLife #JustGoShoot #Landscape #Wanderlust #HighlandCollective #InstaScotland #DriveScotland #igers_scotland #highlandsofscotland #igscotland #unlimitedscotland #traveling_scotland #scotlandshots #explore_scotland_
Managed to side step the stag to get up to the Lochan last night.
Sunset goals 😍 Lower Diabaig, Torridon. Looking out over the Loch towards the north of Skye. This is sadly not my sunset right now πŸŒ„
Strathy Beach
It’s been a tad dreich on the west coast, a misty Torren Lochan this afternoon
After a day of rain, I was hoping the Loup of Fintry falls would be a bit more spectacular, but, it was still just a trickle! The evening light made it look pretty though! This was my first try at using the RAW file format.. turned out alright! πŸ“· .

✧✦✧ I’m not sure if this is the same stag as in my last picture I posted of Ardvreck, there were so many of them around. Actually I quite often meet stags when I’m there. It’s one of my favourite places in Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 There’s a special atmosphere which always gives me the feeling to be in the right place, at home ✦✧✦ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(β€˜Γœβ€™)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ #ThisIsScotland ・ #hiddenscotland #everything_imaginable #folkgreen #folksouls #folkscenery #osmaps #uk_shooters #rural_love #wigwamtravels #country_features #renegade_rural #castlesofscotland #nc500 #mync500adventure #nb_nature_brilliance #wonderlustscotland #fingerprintofgod #bbctravel #bestscotlandpics #bestunitedkingdom #earth_shotz #passionpassport #hubs_united #explore_scotland_ #fiftyshades_of_nature #ourplanetdaily #scottishcollective #stayandwander #ig_eternity

Great to see the heather in bloom breaking up the monotony of green over the last two months
I just love seeing these guys - the common prawn. It's like they've got a disco going on inside them all the time! You've got to be quick if you want a photo of them because they can't half shift when they want to! They're also really curious about my camera and they get really close to have a good look, which makes taking a photo of them nigh on impossible. It's definitely worth exploring Scotland's underwater world - you never know what delights you will see. . . . . . #CommonPrawn #Snorkelling #Highlands #Scotland #panasonic #ikelite #BSAC #UnderwaterPhotography #VisitScotland #ScotSpirit #LoveScotland #ig_scotland Β  #icu_scotland #HiddenScotland #OSMAPS #GetOutside #Loves_Scotland #ExploreToCreate #VisualsOfLife #JustGoShoot #Landscape #Wanderlust #HighlandCollective #InstaScotland #igers_scotland #highlandsofscotland #igscotland #unlimitedscotland #explore_scotland_ #scotlandshots
