Autumn has got to be one of the most sensational times of year for landscape photographers.  Any decent sized area containing deciduous woodland quite literally turns to gold and blazes with a rich tapestry of colour.  One area that responds particularly well to the onset of autumn is the Trossachs on the eastern side of Loch Lomond.  It is remarkably close to the cultural centre of Scotland, Glasgow, but for all it's proximity it could just as easily be worlds away.  Cool autumnal mornings fill low lying glens with mist, that hang wraith like over mirror smooth lochs, only rising clear with the first warming kiss of sunlight.  The combination of colour and atmosphere is truly magical and I have done my very best to time this particular course with peak autumn colour.

Areas of special interest will be Conic Hill, and Beinn A'an with opportunities to climb both, they offer stunning views for relatively little effort.  Then there is stunning Loch Achray, Loch Ard with its mist, reed beds and quaint wooden boat sheds and even the odd jetty.  The Queens Pass, and the wilder areas leading down to East Lomond at Loch Chon, and beautiful Loch Arklett.  There is a wealth of opportunity close at hand for us to explore both the intimate and wider view.  

During your stay you will be based at the Buchanan Arms Hotel in the pretty little village of Drymen on the eastern edge of Loch Lomond.  Each photographer will stay single occupancy in en-suite twin/double bedded rooms on a bed, breakfast and evening meal basis so the only extra is to buy something suitable for lunch.  This Best Western hotel serves decent meals and has all the facilities to make this a genuinely pleasurable break including a swimming pool, spa and gymnasium don't forget your cozzy!!

I am delighted to re-introduce this wonderful area for landscape photography and feel sure that you will enjoy it immensely.
