Several images were recognised in the latest Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year awards, that included the overall winner Allan Donald’s Shining Peak, Stob Coire nan Lochan, Glencoe and the landscape category winner Seán Kerr’s White Islands, Harris.

Seán Kerr, a member of the society and organiser of the exhibition said: “Scotland’s beauty is both rich and diverse and the images in this exhibition capture all of this.  We hope that tenants will be able to take some time out of their busy day to enjoy the collection, that brings Scotland’s awe-inspiring landscapes to adorn Skypark’s walls”.

Scotland’s Beauty is one of five exhibitions being held in Scotland and other locations are Edinburgh, Perth, Birnam and the Isle of Harris.
