Pictures taken on the Isle of Harris have helped an Inverness doctor take the top slot in the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

Winner Dr Kenny Muir works at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness and has other things on his mind just now, so news of the win late last week (Thursday 19 March) came as a welcome diversion.

He said: ““As a hospital doctor I will be taking a break from photography to focus on current events, but really appreciate receiving the award.”

Dr Muir’s picture ‘Seilebost Gneiss’ was the overall winning image.

Photographer Bill Ward was also a winner, in the seascape category, with his image ‘Incoming Storm, Luskentyre’, while two other views of Luskentyre were named among the competition commendations.

The Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year – Collection 6 by Breeze Media is available to pre order at www.slpoty.com/ price £25.
