Loch Garry, Scotland

The drive up the A9 main road from Perth to the north of Scotland is a great experience, although one which demands much patience as progress can be slow. Despite being the main route between northern and southern Scotland, the main road remains a single carriageway for much of its length. Reaching the Drumochter Pass, […]

Timelapse: P&O Oriana, Invergordon

We were lucky enough to be at Invergordon on the Cromarty Firth in Scotland when this huge cruise liner was preparing to depart. This time lapse sequence was taken over the course of twenty minutes or so, as the dock hands freed the ship and it headed out along the firth to the North Sea.

Loch Leven, Perth & Kinross

On our way back to Edinburgh from Angus, we stopped off at Kinross to see the impressive expanse of Loch Leven, frozen and covered with snow. View this photo larger at Permanent Tourist. For those who may not have visited the UK before and who are interested in the light; much of the U.K. is […]

Leadhills, Dumfries and Galloway

We took a diversion off the motorway to explore the wintry countryside and came across this village, buried in snow. Read more and see the rest of my photos from the village at Permanent Tourist.

Abington Services, Lanarkshire

Jo and I visited many motorway service stations during our trip to the UK, but this was my favourite, amongst the frozen, icy, rolling hills of the south of Scotland.

Abington, Lanarkshire

Our intended destination on Christmas Eve, after driving up from Hampshire en route to Dundee. As the roads were clear, we took just a short break here and carried on.

The beach at Morar, western Scotland

This was on my first trip to the western coast of Scotland, en route to the Isle of Skye. The white sand and brilliant turquoise sea still amazes me and I hope to return there soon, to be able to take more photographs of the amazing and unexpected landscape views.

Desktop wallpaper – Loch Leven (right)

I’m feeling generous: here’s a large image which my contacts can download at full 1920 x 1200 resolution, for use as a computer desktop wallpaper. For those lucky enough to have two screens, the images will match up to provide a panoramic image across both screens. Let me know if you’ve used this and how […]

Sandy Boyd of the Wormit Hedgehog Care Centre in Scotland

Jo’s parents found baby hedgehogs in their garden for three Fridays in a row during September this year. The animals were late babies – too small to survive the winter – so Jo’s father Roy drove the 20-odd miles to take them to the Wormit Hedgehog Care Centre, across the River Tay from Dundee. Jo […]

The beach and town at St. Andrews

Gorgeous stormy light, the original image captured for a stitched 30 Mpx. file. If only the right-hand side were sharp, I’d probably have this printed poster-size to go on our wall at home.
