Whale Watching in Gairloch
Photographer Dan Cook documents his experience of Whale watching in Gairloch whilst fulfilling a dream he never knew he had.
Words & Photography: Dan Cook
"Whale watching always seemed like a far flung exotic activity to me. It never really clicked in my mind that here on my home island it's possible to glide across the waves and find all manner of sea life thriving in the cold north. Close to home and yet seemingly a world away, my trip to Gairloch in the Wester Ross region of Scotland fulfilled a little dream I never knew I had. A departure from my usual focus on the spectacular landscapes of Scotland, here I was floating around in the waters of The Minch hoping to find animals I had never seen before."
