Absolute Escapes December 21 2021

It’s been an unusual year in travel. So unusual that we’re delighted to have anything to look back on, let alone a huge batch of joyful photos from our clients’ adventures in the UK & Ireland.

After an enforced break in 2020, we were delighted to relaunch our annual photo competition at the start of December. With so many stunning photos sent to us this year, it was incredibly difficult to narrow them down to the best 12.

In order to crown the winners, we passed it over to you to vote for your favourite shots on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

With voting now officially closed, we’re delighted to announce the winners of our Walking Holidays and Self-Drive Holidays categories…

The winning photographers will receive large canvas prints of their stunning shots, while all of the finalists in our photo competitions will be sent 2022 calendars.

A big thanks to everybody who took the time to vote for their favourite photo on our social media. The randomly-selected winners were Lisa Shaw and Melloney O’Connor who will also receive 2022 calendars. Congratulations!

If you’d like to walk the West Highland Way or enjoy a road trip around the Scottish Highlands in 2022, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our expert team.
