Puffin Photography

My husband and I are planning to go to Scotland, mainly for birds photography. It would be around 23rd July for couple of days.
I've personally never been to Scotland therefore would appreciate some advices as to which places we shall look at.
As we will fly either to Glasgow or Edinburgh, which Isle(s) would be the best for the birds photography?
We are going to stay couple of nights in the city nearby the Isle(s), what would you recommend?
I think that is for now, once again, highly appreciate your advices.

    Hi @nbeetz.

    In terms of bird photography, you have plenty of island options in Scotland to choose from. Having just returned from the Isle of Staffa, it's a great place to see puffins. Other islands you could possibly go to would be Ailsa Craig, the Isle of Mull and Islay. Have a Google and see if any are within distance on your adventure as they all have plenty of different wildlife on offer. 

    Enjoy your trip!
