In September 2015 I paid my first dedicated photographic trip to Scotland, spending the majority of it in the spellbinding Isle of Skye. Its a long drive however so we split the return trip so we could spend some time around Glencoe and Loch Lomond.
Castle Stalker was on the top of the list of places I wanted to photograph, while I was in this area. Castle Stalker (Scottish Gaelic: Caisteal an Stalcaire) is a four-story tower house or keep picturesquely set on a tidal islet on Loch Laich, an inlet off Loch Linnhe. It is about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north-east of Port Appin, Argyll, Scotland, and is visible from the A828 road about midway between Oban and Glen Coe. The islet is accessible (with difficulty) from the shore at low tide. The name “Stalker” comes from the Gaelic Stalcaire, meaning “hunter” or “falconer”. (Source: Wiki)
The weather was somewhat challenging on the evening with heavy cloud cover and intermittent rain. However patience paid off in the end with a momentary thinning of the clouds that allowed the warmth of sunset shine through.
