Many photogenic locations are worth visiting this autumn including Loch Katrine, the jewel in the crown of the Trossachs which inspired Sir Walter Scott. There is also Yair, a peaceful forest which boasts some of the loveliest views of the Tweed Valley imaginable, and Bennan, a vantage point which looms high above Loch Ken and the rolling Galloway countryside. Capture the woods of Lochgoilhead hidden away in Argyll Forest Park at their most hauntingly beautiful, or hike all the way up to the tip of Meall a’ Bhuachaille from Glenmore Visitor Centre. Here you’ll be met with a vantage point nothing short of awe-inspiring. Whilst some of these locations are at some distance you may be travelling through these areas to or from central Scotland and they are worth remembering as good photography locations.
If you do not want to travel far from your self-catering holiday cottage here in central Scotland there are many forest parks and visitor attractions within reasonable travelling distances that really do look completely different at this time of year and are worth visiting to photograph the autumn colours at their best.
