Loch Watten is a 3 mile long body of water in Caithness. It’s famous among fly fishermen for its wild Brown Trout, and attracts visitors from all over the world annually.
These are a few shots from a last-minute trip to Loch Watten to catch the sunset. The car park at the east shore of the loch is the perfect place for sunset photography in Caithness, facing west with an unobstructed view across the water.
Unfortunately the Sun disappeared behind cloud sitting low on the horizon. I took these shots amidst swarms of biting midges. Not too shabby considering!
If you have a camera and you can see a sunset, Watten is one of the best places to get some photos!
