Scottish Field - - ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE -

I am Ar­gyll born and bred so be­ing able to pro­mote Ar­gyll and Glas­gow has been an absolute dream. The beauty of this land­scape in­spired me to pick up a cam­era and alight my love of pho­tog­ra­phy. Over the week I drove 600 miles vis­it­ing places which I have fre­quented since child­hood along with dis­cov­er­ing new places. What makes the land­scapes of Ar­gyll so great is that they are very var­ied. On Mull there are dra­matic cliffs, Eas­dale has slate quar­ries, Kin­tyre of­fers sweeping golden beaches and on Cowal there’s misty glens. And that’s only scratch­ing the sur­face. My highlight of the trip had to be watch­ing ot­ters on the shores of Loch Scridain. Along with my guide Bryan from Wild about Mull I watched the pair fish­ing, play­ing and grooming. Ot­ters have been my favourite na­tive species since child­hood so this was mag­i­cal. Other no­table men­tions are the beach at Traigh Bhan na Sgurra (Scoor.) The de­serted white sandy bay looked ex­quis­ite in the late evening light and watch­ing an ea­gle over­head made it even bet­ter. Watch­ing the sun­set from the top of the Mull of Kin­tyre was also spec­tac­u­lar, it felt like stand­ing at the edge of the world! What’s great is that th­ese land­scapes can be so eas­ily ac­cessed from Glas­gow. Some of the places I vis­ited are only an hour away and even the most re­mote ar­eas like the Mull of Kin­tyre may take up to four hours by car, but the en­tire jour­ney is just as spe­cial as the des­ti­na­tion it­self with plenty op­tions to stop and take in the amaz­ing land­scapes along the way.
