Non-participants on Photography Weekend Breaks

Non-participants and photographers’ partners are always made extremely welcome on these Photography Weekend Breaks.

McClellan's Castle Kirkcudbright
We all get together initially for our welcome drink on arrival before dinner and we always dine together.

Non-participants also join us for morning coffee and afternoon teas. These are great times for sharing experiences and fun.

We like to feel that non-participants are very much a welcome part of the group, but it is regretted that non-participants can not accompany the photographers to the locations we photograph. This is for everyone’s benefit and allows all the photographers to concentrate and enjoy their photography and tuition.

Normally non-particpants have far too much to do anyway. There's plenty to see and do in and around the lovely town of Kirkcudbright.
