Outlander Photography Tours

Outlander Photography Tours

(Glencoe)

 

We are now taking bookings for our new Outlander Photography Tours for 2018. These tours are for up to 4 people and last 3 nights and 4 days.

We will provide you with accommodation for the 3 nights at a lovely Bed and Breakfast with a log fire, located in a 17th century courtyard set in the Midlothian countryside, just 8 miles south of Edinburgh, in a beautiful rural location.

We will pick you up from Waverly Train Station or Edinburgh International Airport and return you to the same location (or Central Edinburgh) at the end of the tour. Photographic instruction will be given at each location and if necessary, photographic equipment provided, to ensure you go home with stunning photographs of the Outlander locations.

For four people the cost would be £2,700 based on double occupancy. The Bed and Breakfast is set in a 17th century courtyard and has 2 double bedrooms and two separate bathrooms. There is a kitchen with a microwave and hob, refrigerator and sink. There is a lounge/livingroom with a log fire and stunning views across the Lammermuir Hills. The B&B is located 8 miles south of Edinburgh in the Midlothian countryside, just minutes walk away from the Old Glencorse Kirk (Where Jamie and Claire got married in the TV series) and is serviced by a very good public bus service going to Edinburgh (to the north) and Penicuik (to the south) and minutes walk from the Fishers Tryst Pub (Robert Louis Stevenson mentioned this hostelry in his writings from Samoa). The ideal situation for this B&B would be two couples, however, if it is four singles we can arrange alternate accommodation for two of the singles and will still be afforded the same pick-up and drop-off as those staying at the 17th century accommodation. If double occupancy doesn’t suit there would be an additional surcharge of £90 per person for all three nights. Freshly baked bread and jams/marmalade is provided each morning at the B&B. Appropriate lunch breaks and bio-breaks are included each day, however lunch and dinner is down to each individual. There is a lovely Italian restaurant that is 12 minutes walk from the B&B. We are also happy to provide transportation to restaurants etc and can certainly make great recommendations. We will also take a variety of specialist photography equipment on each day’s tour and are happy to share that with each group to ensure they are going home with the very best photographs. James has been a professional photographer for over 35 years and is always happy to help others get fantastic photographs.

Day one would include visits to the following locations: Preston Mill; Gosford House; Hopetoun House; Blackness Castle; Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway Station; Linlithgow Palace and Callander House.

Please note: James will host a free photo editing session after dinner on the first night, to ensure you’re going home with exceptional shots.

Day two would include visits to the following locations: Culross; Aberdour Castle; Dysart Harbour; Balgonie Castle; Anstruther (The Reaper Tall Ship); Falkland; Tibbermore Church and if time permits Deanston Distillery

Day three would include visits to Callander (Photograph hairy Coos – Highland Cattle); The stunningly beautiful Glencoe; Kinloch Rannoch; Highland Folk Museum and Loch Katrine

Day four would include visits to Dean Castle; Drumlanrig Castle and several stunning views of Edinburgh Castle.
