Join landscape photographer Cailean Maclean on a short gentle walk around the Amar loop Road at Struan. He will give you an insight to what excites him photographically about this landscape and how he goes about framing a shot. If you are a budding photographer, this walk is ideal.
ABOUT CAILEAN MACLEAN
Cailean Maclean was born and brought up in the Outer Hebrides and has lived on the Isle of Skye for 30 years.

ABOUT AMAR LOOP ROAD
The Amar River empties into the sea at the bottom of the Struan Hill Road. Higher up the river where it meets the Braccadale Burn is the farm of Amar. The shore is rich with wading birds; golden eagles, as well as sea eagles and otters, can be seen in the area.
