An excellent day exploring Shetland's highest hill - Ronas Hill - and the remote Lang Ayre coastline on its west side. A wild, rugged and spectacularly scenic coastline that is off the beaten track.
The highlights of a summer trip to the wonderful Shetland Islands - islands that far exceeded my expectations and to which I very much look forward to returning. Check out my photos from puffins at Sumburgh Head in the south to Herma Ness in the north, cosmopolitan Lerwick, Bressay and Noss boat trips, and many beautiful places in between with spectacular coastal scenery guaranteed.
Bucholly Castle is a fascinating ruin set in a stunning, remote location on the east coast of Caithness south of John o' Groats. It is perched above the North Sea on a rocky peninsula joined to the mainland by a narrow neck of land with steep drops to the geos on either side.
Waves crashing on to the rocks on a grey Saturday afternoon in Caithness, just a fleeting hint of brightness from the west and a choppy Pentland Firth with Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of the British Mainland, in the distance.
Sunset photos on a serene November afternoon from Dwarwick Head and Peedie Beach near Dunnet, Caithness, Scotland.
Ceannabeinne beach near Durness, a special place even on a grey November day. Photos from Beinn Ceannabeinne and Ceannabeinne beach in late afternoon light with a cheeky “Smoo Cave at dusk” photo for good measure!
