Art and photography retreats

Glen Clova is the perfect setting for art and photography retreats in Scotland. The Angus hills delight and enthral artists and photographers of all ages and skill levels.

There's nothing like the Scottish countryside to get your creative juices flowing. Whether your interest is with the floral and fauna of the hills, you’d love to see deer, mountain animals and wild birds up close or it’s the stunning scenery that draws you to the hills, then Glen Clova and Glen Doll deliver all of this in abundance. Bring your camera or art supplies along and head out into the hills for an artistic experience.

An inspiring landscape

If you choose to explore under your own steam, there are so many beautiful places to discover in the glens. Enjoy the serenity of the outdoors and find a picturesque spot to capture. From towering mountains and glittering lochs to abundant Scottish wildlife, you won't be short of subject matter. Our hotel is located by Glen Doll and Loch Brandy, a spectacular part of the Cairngorms National Park, where beauty lies in every direction. And within Glen Doll, Corrie Fee is a hidden gem worth seeking out. Its dramatic contours and rare plants offer a wealth of picture-perfect views. These amazing landscapes are sure to inspire your next masterpiece!

Guided photography tours

For our guests in the hotel and lodges, we can arrange a guided tour, which will take you out into the hills in 4x4s. However, in order to get close to the deer you may need to trek across the moors, so a decent level of fitness is needed. Please pre-book in advance if you wish to partake in one of these wonderful photography experiences. The guided tours are subject to availability of stalkers.
