ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY

Flying from Heathrow to Edinburgh with British Airways on Monday 8th June and returning to Heathrow on Friday 12th June 2020 we will stay in Bamburgh at The Victoria Hotel in single occupancy rooms on a bed and breakfast basis for four nights.
Bamburgh is a beautiful village overlooked by the stunning Bamburgh Castle, (image above) and famous for being the home of Grace Darling, a lighthouse keepers’ daughter who assisted in the rescue of passengers from a wrecked ship on The Farne Islands in 1838. There are many views of the castle within easy walking distance of our hotel and you will have many opportunities to photograph it during your week at different times of day and in various lighting conditions. The hotel has a great restaurant and bar although there are several pubs and a lovely seafood restaurant in the village. Transport in an air conditioned 9 seater will be provided throughout the week from and returning to Edinburgh Airport.

A day photographing the Puffins, seals and other wildlife on The Farne Islands has been arranged with a visit by boat spending 2 hours on one of the islands in the morning and transferring to another island for a further two hours photography in the afternoon. May/June is the height of the nesting season for Puffins so there will be no reason that you won’t be able to capture these pretty birds in their natural surroundings. The Farne Islands are a short boat ride from Seahouses, a small town down the road from Bamburgh.
 
A day will also be spent on the mythical Holy Island (Lindisfarne) famous for its access road that floods at high tide and its beautiful harbour and castle. You will be on the Island as the road floods and leave later in the day as the tide reduces. There are some excellent locations to photograph whilst exploring this historic place.

The remainder of the week will be spent exploring the many beautiful seascapes, castles, stone circles, tiny harbours and the possibility of visiting a livestock market in the National Park.
Regular stops for a tea, coffee and lunch have been arranged for all the days apart from our trip to The Farne Islands where you will be required to purchase drinks and a packed lunch in the town before boarding the boat.

There are no long journeys in vehicles as everything is within easy reach of our hotel. Bamburgh is about a 1 and a half hour journey from Edinburgh Airport.
