Eilean Donan at Night

I have recently got back from a 5 day phototrip up to the Isle of Skye in Scotland with Geoff Moore, Pete Rowbottom and Mark Waidson

 

The trip up consisted of a number of stop offs to grab shots of those 'classic' locations. As both Mark & Geoff live down in Worcestershire, their trips north are quite infrequent so it made sense to shoot what we could, and we were not in any rush either.

 

One of the stop offs was at Eilean Donan castle next to the A87 road to Skye, located at Dornie on Loch Duich. It is a popular spot, and has a large car parking space for tourist coaches etc. I came past here in early October 2018 and saw absolutely nothing due to the heavy rain and mist - I didn't even stop to try and grab a shot. This time was very different, and at night too. We perhaps lingered for 45 mins and then went across the road bridge over Loch Long and tried from the opposite side. The trip was productive and I probably have about 600 images to work through, as well as four hours of video.
