The Torridon Inn

The Torridon Inn (Torridon, Achnasheen IV22 2EY) has the most spectacular views of the Torridon Mountains in Wester Ross, Scotland. The majestic Scottish Highlands are just on the doorstep. The Inn sits right on the edge of the beautiful Loch Torridon, rich with wildlife and birds. In the distance you can see the blue mountain Beinn Alligin. There are some incredible nature walks that you can take, right from the doorstep of the Inn, just make sure you have your camera ready. It is common to spot pine martens, otters and red deer. If you are head to the nearby coast, you can also spot whales and seals. You will certainly want to come home and create a picture collage of all the amazing wildlife that you have seen on your trip.

Capturing your Photos

Scotland is known for having some of the most dramatic weather in the UK. There is certainly no shortage of rain, particularly in the winter months. When you are taking your photos make sure you take into account the changing light. You may have to adjust your exposure settings, particularly if you are using a film camera. In the summer months, take advantage of the long evenings when the Highlands are soaked in sunshine. This is often the best time to take really startling images.

The Aultguish Inn

The Aultguish Inn (Main Road, Garve, Ullapool, IV23 2PQ) pride themselves on warm hospitality. It is an ancient drovers inn that sits nestled in the Highland wilderness near Garve. The inn is only open from April through to October and has wonderfully comfortable rooms, home-cooked hearty fare and a wide range of Scotch Whiskies to sample. You won’t have to even leave the inn to take some stunning photos at this picturesque pub. It is quite common to see herds of red deer running past the bar. The Aultguish Inn is an ideal base for hillwalkers too - there are plenty of scenic routes starting right from the front door.

The Lochailort Inn

The Lochailort Inn (Lochailort, Fort William, PH38 4LZ) is situated for so many wonderful photo opportunities. Loch Ailort and Loch Eilt are closeby and you are only five minutes from the rambling hills of Moidart. It is also only a short drive from some of the beautiful west coast beaches. Many photography enthusiasts also try to capture the local steam train as it runs through the hills in a blaze of colour and smoke. The Lochailort Inn is a wonderful base to explore the Fort William area of Scotland, it is picture postcard perfect.

These pubs are warm, comfortable and located in some of the more picturesque areas in Scotland. On your holiday you can take some photographs that truly capture the magnificent landscape and wildlife of the country.
