Photo Walks and Photography Breaks with Graham Riddell Photography


Innerleithen is an excellent location for exploring the Scottish Borders and yet is only 35mins from the boundary of Scotland’s capital Edinburgh.

The town is surrounded by the softer rolling hills of the Southern Uplands to the south and has many smaller hills which offer vistas over the Tweed Valley and easier low level walks beside the rivers Tweed and Leithen where wildlife can be observed along with local fauna and woodlands.

Cosaig is pleased to offer visitors inclusive packages with the photographer in mind.

Local professional photographer Graham Riddell has lived in the area since the mid 90’s and became a full time freelance photographer in 2007. Graham’s work is predominately of Nature, from landscapes to plants and woodlands, where he seeks to create images that capture either the moment, or essence of his chosen subject.

We are pleased to offer several photography packages for our guests during their stay here whether you are a complete beginner looking for advice, or a keen amateur wishing to explore the area’s photographic opportunities and develop a deeper understanding of the photographic medium.
