The winners of the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year competition have been announced – here are the best images.

The competition, now in its fourth year, is the brainchild of Perthshire-based landscape photographer Stuart Low, who wanted to inspire photographers to explore Scotland’s stunning landscape and heritage.

The winning entries will be published in a series of public exhibitions across Scotland as well as in a special edition book that will be launched on 27th March 2018.
