Scotland – Always surprising

Scotland is one destination every landscape photographer is keen on. Though quite easy and quickly to reach from Central Europe, it can offer you a feeling of remoteness you might expect somewhere in the subarctic north. At least when you go to the highlands and the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Famous for its roughness, the Isle of Skye is a highly concentrated mixture of spectacular landscapes of any kind: alpine mountains, wild rivers, lonely beaches. The Outer Hebrides are even more primeval. Exposed to the forces of the Northern Atlantic Ocean without protection, Isle of Harris and Isle of Lewis partly consist just of bare rock, among the oldest of the planet. And though you wouldn’t expect extensive beaches of pure white sand, the ones around Losgaintir belong to the most beautiful one in whole Great Britain and possibly in the world – if the weather is fine.
