The most important thing to remember is to be prepared for the worst that Scotland's weather can throw at you. Wear the correct clothing and protect your camera gear but most importantly don't put yourself in a dangerous position whether on the coast or up a mountain.
You also need to work fast. The sunlight on the waves breaking at Seil Island lasted a few minutes before the rain clouds closed in. See the picture and anticipate the light. It doesn't always happen, that is the frustrating thing about landscape photography, but when it does.....
Here are some of the shots that were taken on the trip to Oban -
