Dippen Head, Arran

Leaving Kildonan we headed NE to Dippen Head. A raised beach runs round almost all of Arran.

At Dippen Head Tertiary basalt cliffs are broken by a waterfall and clothed by a beautiful, mixed deciduous woodland. Peregrine falcons swoop on their prey from ledges hidden by the tops of the trees. There is an ancient fort at Dippen. The centuries have eroded it so that it is all but indistinguishable from the surrounding rocks.



  1. Hi there,

    Cool stuff you got. Nice take, where did you get this?
    By the way, let me show you some of my works

    Many thanks

  2. Hi Jay thanks for dropping by again.

    I am not a proper photographer (I love your photosorcery site!) but I do use a Canon 5D with an L IS lens on the water. Obviously you need to have quite good balance in a kayak or it's gone! I use a polarizing filter and tend to underexpose to avoid burning out the skies. If necessary I can adjust the exposure of the foreground in Photoshop and blend using the gradient tool in layers.
