Edinburgh-based photographer Murray Orr shows us the gentle side of Scotland’s wild through his lens; capturing its vast moors and magnificent Munros alongside its townships and the faces of both the animals and people who live there.

Orr credits his affection for the Scottish wilderness to his immersion in it; from an early age, the photographer has spent his spare time traversing the ruggedly beautiful landscape that Scotland has become famous for. In this selection of images, his connection to such places is evident. With Orr, we roam the rolling plains of Scotland; from the beachside settlement of Achmelvich in the Highlands, to waterfalls in the Arrochar Alps and to the windswept coastline where Rhue Lighthouse helps ships hold their course.
