Scotland: Glencoe

Scotland: Glencoe

To say that Glencoe was the highlight of my adventures in Scotland would be an understatement. If you know me at all, you know that I’m always chasing after beautiful views and epic landscapes. As we drove towards Glencoe, I was completely in awe of the approaching mountains and my amazement didn’t end until long after the sun went down.

This first handsome fellow is Jasper. Jasper belongs to Craig from Craig Cantwell Photography (of Scotland). Jasper spent most of the week with us and he was the absolute best model! Doesn’t he just belong in the mountains of Glencoe?

This next photograph of Xena and her ball might be my favorite photo of the whole trip. It was one of those perfect moments where everything comes together in the most amazing way. I love the way Xena becomes part of the mountainscape.

As a herding breed lover, Border Collies are the first breed that I think of when I think of Scotland and Great Britain. Having the opportunity to photograph collies in Glencoe was a dream come true! They really do look like they belong here.

Even though they seem like an odd couple, Xena the German Shepherd and Hollie the Beagle are from the same family. While my day was spent behind the camera, Xena and Hollie enjoyed exploring, eating lots of treats, chasing tennis balls, and being absolute rock star models!

Thank you to Jasper, Xena, Hollie, and Nova for being such amazing models for our adventure in Glencoe! There was actually one more pet that I photographed in Glencoe, but he’s so special, he’s getting his own blog post. Can you guess what kind of pet he is? (Hint – he’s not a dog!)

New Hampshire’s White Mountains aren’t quite the same as Glencoe, but they’re absolutely epic in their own way. Does your dog love exploring in the mountains? Contact me and let’s plan an adventure for your dog!
