Scotland360° Hebridean Islands Panoramic Photography

I have been fortunate to visit the many of the Hebridean islands many times. The landscapes, the light and the weather provide unique opportunities for photography.

The collection of panoramas below are brought together as a reminder of some superb trips to the Hebrides and a recollection of the places visited.

Click on any of the photographs below and a new window will open displaying the panorama as a high resolution, interactive view. Having opened the panoramic image, use the controls to pan, zoom and navigate. Right clicking 360° panoramas will allow viewing in differing perspectives.

West Beach, Isle of Berneray

West Beach on Berneray

Berneray in the Outer Hebrides sits between North Uist and Harris in the Sound of Harris. Small enough to explore easily but large enough to enjoy the solitude and the beautiful scenery, Berneray is definitely a place to return to...

An overcast sky full of menace, the West Beach at Berneray stretching on to infinity and the island of Pabbay sitting at the western end of the Sound of Harris.

Wide Angle Panorama - The Road to Rhenigidale, The Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides

A ground level panoramic view to Loch Seaforth and to the North Harris Hills, this wide angle panorama was captured at the side of the "Road to Rhenigidale". The Rheningidale road was many years in the planning but it took until February 1990 before it was officially opened, finally connecting a remote coastal community to the "mainland" of Harris.

This panorama is one of a series of panoramas from the Outer Isles.

Luskentyre Beach Aerial 360 Panorama

360° Aerial Panorama - Luskentyre Beach, The Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides

No visit to Harris would be complete without a walk along Luskentyre beach. With miles of white sandy beach and stunning views to the hills of North Harris, Luskentyre deserves its reputation.

Looking at the view from an elevated perspective, the colours in the water radiate out from the beach across to the island of Taransay which sits some 1.5km off from the beach.

Southwards, to the left of Taransay, Toe Head can clearly be seen, whilst northwards of Taransay, North Harris stretches out westwards towards Amhuinnsuidhe.

This panorama is one of a series of 360° aerial panoramas from the Outer Isles.

Wide Angle Panorama - Mol Ghiasgar, Hirta, St Kilda Archipelago

July 2014 and a sea kayaking trip to St Kilda in amazing weather. This allowed us an opportunity to explore the coastline of this unique and remote archipelago by sea kayak with an unrivaled view of the islands and their rugged grandeur. During the circumnavigation of Hirta, the main island of the archipelago, there are few areas to land but Mol Ghiasgar on the northern coast of Hirta is one such place. With a rocky, boulder beach, it's possible to land by sea kayak at low tide affording a great view to neighbouring Boreray.
