Welcome to the Ancient Scotland pages - a personal photographic view of some of the ancient sites of Scotland.
I'm Martin McCarthy, a photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland. I've been taking photographs of Scotland's landscape - particularly ancient sites - since 1993. The Ancient Scotland website has been documenting those ancient sites since 1995 and is illustrated with thousands of my photos.
Before becoming a full-time photographer in 2007 I had my own computer consultancy business and I am the author of several technical journal articals and computing books.
All photographs, text and drawings on the Ancient Scotland website are copyright Martin McCarthy except where explicitly stated otherwise.
The pictures on this site date from 1993 through to the present. I like to think I'm a better photographer now than I was 30 years ago, so the quality can be a little variable; the better (in my opinion) pictures will be those in the last few years on the Latest Stuff page!
You can follow me on Twitter. You'll mostly just see notifications for when I update the website with new photos and locations.
