Eilean Donan

A place that is certainly currently on your list, Eilean Donan is the classic Scottish castle web page. Arrive ahead of 8am and have the spot to oneself. If it is a clear day? (Goooood luck getting one particular of these, mate.) Get there for sunrise.


Glenfinnian Viaduct

If you have ever dreamed of operating away from residence and heading for Hogwarts, you will know this fantastical location. Arrive ahead of 10.30am to capture footage of the magnificent Jacobite train coasting previous the loch and via the highlands.


Fondly regarded as ‘The Jewel of the Highlands’, wee tiny Plockton does not disappoint. The coastal town is resplendent with its lush forests, sapphire blue waters and hidden historic ruins.

Glen Nevis

Loch Loyne Wind Farm

Pull more than, stretch your legs at this picturesque spot, and send your gadget to the skies. Capturing dozens of wind turbines moving in harmony is an unexpected treat.

Whilst your drone could go far on its personal, you may not. Soz. So obtain oneself a sweet ride. Irrespective of whether you are soon after a sensible 4WD or possibly a spiffy sedan is much more your style, Avis will hook you up.

I got my Mercedes from these guys and I could not have been happier. On my highland travels I covered about 900 miles (sadly not 500 miles, Proclaimers style) and through the lengthy journey, comfort and practicality have been a priority.

Fortunately, my Avis beast was ideal for that. The car or truck had an intuitive interface for GPS and music, a roomy boot for all my gear and the sleekest reclining seats. Even the window wipers automatically flung into gear when it detected a drizzle. When you get to the beautifully damp Scotland you will recognize just how wondrous a function this seriously is…

…Scotland is by no implies a dry nation, so:

When there’s a break in the rainfall, it is go time. Take to the skies STAT.

Be wary of drone guidelines at every web page.

Internet sites like Eilean and Glenfinnian only let flights outdoors of common organization hours and with the house owner’s permission. So just be alert and respectful, and you will be much more than fine.
