The Devils Pulpit outlander location Finnich Glen Glasgow 70ft deep Gorge

Location Devils Pulpit Address: A809, Dumgoyne, Glasgow Postcode G63 9QL

Finnich Glen in Stirlingshire, is a short, steep glen up to 70 ft deep which runs east from Finnich Bridge on the A809. It was carved from the red sandstone by the Carnock Burn.

It features a circular rock known as the Devil’s Pulpit and a steep staircase knows as the Devil’s Steps, build around 1860.

The Devil’s Pulpit is a a short 70ft steep Glen near Drymen. Although many consider it a ‘hidden gem’, it’s really easy to get to and can easily be done on a boring Sunday afternoon. Why not get out and about, explore?!

The Devil’s Pulpit is not only great for a little walk/exploration, but it also holds a bit of Scottish history and culture. Legend has it that it was the meeting place of the ancient Druids and somewhere where Satan himself preached to the monks.

The truth forcing spring scenes in episode 6 of Outlander were filmed at Finnich Glen, The Devil’s Pulpit.

Saint Conans Kirk Loch Awe Scotland

Myself and my wife spent a couple of days Argyll and Bute, Scotland to camp up at Loch Awe to photograph kilchurn castle. On the way my wife spotted this very cool old looking church, Saint Conans Kirk near Loch Awe. Initially I did not think it would be that great so I left my tripod in the car. Did not take me long to go back for the tripod 🙂

This photo was 3 exposures +2 0 -2 take with the little Sony A7R. Shot at F8 at 100 ISO with a 28mm fixed prime lens and of course my tripod.

Culzean Bay Sunset

Im fortunate to live on the West coast of Scotland and we have some stunning scenery here all a few miles from our house. Apart from Dunure Castle and Culzean Castle some of the coast line is very picturesque as well. This photo is of Culzean Bay at sunset near the Maidens beach taken on the Sony A7R with a fixed 28mm older film prime lens. A blend of 3 exposures in Photoshop.

Dunure Sunset with the Sony A7R

A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to trade in my trusty Nikon D800 and join the mirrorless revolution. I had been thinking of making the change for a long time and seeing as I had killed my D800 again on my last trip to Thailand I thought now was the time… and TBH I wish I had made the change years ago. Carrying all that weight around before, here I have a pretty much similar setup (if not better) for a fraction of the size and weight!

This is the first proper shoot with the Sony A7R and I decided to head 5 mins down the road from my house to catch a sunset at Dunure. Even though it’s close it’s taken me over 2 years to visit Dunure 🙂

Kelpies Falkirk wild horses

The Kelpies are 30-metre high horse-head sculptures, standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, and near River Carron, in The Helix, a new parkland project built to connect 16 communities in the Falkirk Council Area, Scotland. The sculptures were designed by sculptor Andy Scott and were completed in October 2013. The sculptures form a gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland.

The sculptures opened to the public in April 2014. As part of the project, they will have their own visitor centre, and sit beside a newly developed canal turning pool and extension. This canal extension reconnects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the River Forth, and improves navigation between the East and West of Scotland.
