Scotland’s Treescapes & The Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition at The Watermill Gallery, Aberfeldy, 3 March – 30 April

Stuart Low is one of the key driving forces of landscape photography in Scotland. A photographer, instructor in darkroom techniques and master printer, he founded and organises the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition. This was set up to promote and showcase the most talented photographers in Scotland and enable a wide audience to see their striking images of Scotland’s land, sea and cityscapes.

The exhibition at The Watermill Gallery, Aberfeldy features the work of Stuart, who launches his latest book Scotland’s Treescapes, as well as the work of selected photographers from the Competition. It coincides with the publication of the fourth Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition book, previous issues from earlier competitions have been sell-out publications. The exhibition will also include an exclusive first showing of winning images from this year’s competition.

As a widely published photographer based in rural Perthshire, Stuart Low’s work and limited-edition prints have been collected and exhibited in national galleries, which makes The Watermill Gallery the ideal choice for this latest exhibition and book launch.  The Watermill complex also houses the biggest bookshop in rural Scotland, a cafe and music shop and has been voted The Best Independent Bookshop in the UK and appears in the New Yorker book, The Worlds 75 Greatest Bookstores.

The Watermill in Aberfeldy is open Mon-Sat 10am – 5pm & Sun 11am – 5pm and is within 1½ hours’ drive of Glasgow or Edinburgh. For further information contact The Watermill 01887 822896 or
