A Scotland photography trip was a good choice. When you can go anywhere for a photography trip, where do you go? Based in Europe and always balancing the budget, we thought about the obvious and popular places like Iceland, or more locally with locations we have here in Spain. Spain would be cheaper and it would be great to explore our own country, but seriously, the options are endless so how do you choose? One of the destinations on our list was Scotland. With only two of the five of us having already been there we thought “Yes, from Edinburgh to the Highlands, that would be our trip!”.
We were a group of 5 photographers, having met through a whatsapp group we set about planning our trip. If you have ever tried to plan a trip with a group you might know it can be a challenge to please everyone, luckily we all had the same ideas. Edinburgh was a must and would be our first stop.
This hostel is located in the Old Town of Edinburgh, just a few minutes from the Royal Mile, and close to everything
“Enjoy the Scottish weather!!” we were told leaving the hostel, and they were right. The Scottish weather can be your worst enemy and we sure had our battle with it.
Fortunately, we read a great book written by Edwardo Blanco about photographing in bad weather (Fotografiar con mal tiempo, un buen momento.), and thus we were prepared for a good time.

After a quick breakfast, we continued to the Glenfinnan Viaduct, famous for appearing in the Harry Potter films. If you want to take a photo of the famous steam train, you will have to go in May, which is when the train starts, doing 2 or 3 routes per day.
