Any residents of Scotland??

I'm off up north of the border next week for three days. Staying in Perth and looking (hopefully with the snow at the moment) to head out with the camera.

Any advice on any places of interest to photograph? I was hoping to capture at least one of the lakes and also a castle or two but not aware of any without a good drive out.

Any helpers out there??

Re: Any residents of Scotland??

All good spots but if you are in perth anyway take a 5 minute drive and short hike to the tower on Kinnoull Hill for a nice view up the meandering River Tay.

Re: Any residents of Scotland??

Well my trip to Scotland hasn't exactly gone to plan. Currently sat in the back of a recovery truck heading back home after the timing belt snapped! Managed Loch Leven, Tay and Earn but thats all.

Re: Any residents of Scotland??

Cheers guys. No, it wasn't good. The first day there, the weather was wet and blowing a gale so unfortunately didn't manage to get out and about. The second day (Wednesday), got out in the morning to Loch Tay and Loch Earn. Although very windy, managed to get a few images. That night, the wind dropped and the sky was perfectly clear...set off and got about 5 miles out of Perth when the car broke down.

Would like to say that I was impressed with the people up there. Within half an hour of breaking down, three vehicles had stopped to check we were ok. Anyway, breakdown got the car back to the hotel for us so didn't get any photos of the stars which I was hoping to (could see so many more than anywhere down here). Thursday morning, the breakdown company came and picked us and the car up and took us to Newcastle where we picked up a courtesy car to drive back to Sheffield. They delivered my car today. It's now gone to be repaired.

Been trying to upload one of the images but it's not happening at the moment so will keep trying.

Hopefully I'll get chance to go back up later in the year...maybe when I go to cover Rewind at Scone Palace in July if I have the time.
