Red Stag

Red Stag Workshop

Photograph Britain’s largest mammal during the annual Stag rut in the beautiful Scottish Highlands

This is an outstanding opportunity to photograph this magnificent mammal in their natural habitat

We will be looking to capture the Red Stag Deer bellowing close up and at distance with the Highlands in the background, we may even be lucky and get some action shots

I’ve found over the years gone by that the Red Stag is often more vocal early morning and late afternoon so if you have some landscape equipment we can make use of some spare hours during the day and will visit a few well know locations in Glencoe

Dates Available

  • 10th – 13th October 2019
  • Cost: £165
  • Group Size.  Max of 3

This workshop is expected to sell out quickly so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment


We will meet at the Bridge Of Orchy Hotel at 7.30am  (Full details will be sent upon booking) and head off in my Landrover Discovery for a couple of hours photographing Stags.

We will then head off for some breakfast.

We then have the option of doing some landscape photography at some great locations or continue looking for Stags.

During the day Stags often disappear high up in the mountains and are a lot less vocal than they are early mornings and evenings
