Stirling has a very important place in Scotland’s history. Its strategic location as the gateway to the Highlands resulted in many battles for freedom and it’s no wonder that so many people visit every year to uncover its fascinating history.

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is located in the south east of Scotland on the Firth of Forth estuary. It’s the second largest Scottish city, after Glasgow, with a population of 476,600 and is home to the Scottish Parliament.
I've been taking photographs for around twenty years, but in the last few years it's become an insane full-time passion. I take a wide range of photos, but mainly specialise in Scotland and the wonderful cities of Edinburgh and London.
Dundee is so often overlooked by tourists, which is a great shame, as the city has so much to offer the day tripper. A day in Dundee, discovering Captain Scott’s ship RRS Discovery, the wonderful McManus Gallery & Museum and the Verdant Works is really hard to beat.
