can you help us please ?

    Hello @roncam! Where will your Scotland holiday start - do you arrive into Edinburgh? We can give you better suggestions once we know where you'll begin and end.

    Also just tagging in our resident photography experts @LochNessPhotography and @Lochgmarcp who I'm sure will have suggestions of our best spots for photography at that time of year!

    Hi @roncam, do you have an itinerary already in place? Accommodation booked etc? That would help guide you in the right direction. If you're up in the Highlands then you're spoiled for choice from big landscape shots over Assynt and the mountains of Suilven, Cul Mor and Stac Pollaidh to the beaches at Achnahaird and Sandwood Bay. 

    There's a huge amount to choose from and the West Coast is a prime location for castles, rocky coasts and big seas. But if you like city and street photography Edinburgh's old town is a wonderful place to shoot (especially in the evening or first thing in the morning) and a sunset view over the city from Calton Hill should be on everyone's list... although with the longer days in August you may struggle to stay awake long enough to get a sunset :smile:
