Doune Days

Home Again

Available as a photobook

For the seventh year running, I have returned to a remote part of Scotland which has come to feel like a second home.

Staying in the settlement of Doune on the tip of the Knoydart peninsula, facing Skye across the Sound of Sleat. Drawn back to the remoteness and wildness of the landscape; not to mention the superb home cooked food.

Between the puddings, days are filled with photography: visiting the Small Isles of Canna, Muck, Rùm and Eigg aboard the Mary Doune.

On land, being allowed to roam, explore and experiment: isolating details within the landscape, while attempting the occasional photographic vista too.

I might even have used a tripod on the odd occasion!

The wilderness experience made truly complete by the Red & Black Cuillin served in the Doune Dining Room.
