Being in a photographic competition could mean you need an accident solicitor in Drumnadrochit
Drumnadrochit is a village in the Scottish Highlands lying on the west shore of Loch Ness. Imagine how excited you would be if your photography club arranged a trip to Loch Ness so that you could take part in a competition.
Loch Ness stretches from 5 miles outside Inverness in a south westerly direction alongside the A82 Inverness to Fort William road. In the area there is a wealth of things to do which include: horse riding, cruise boating, fishing trips, cycling and going to visitor centres. Whether you would get a chance to indulge yourself whilst waiting around to take that all exclusive photograph of the famous monster is another thing entirely; it depends how you plan your time
Over competitive types will stop at nothing
The problem with competitions is that some folk will go to any lengths to win. Be warned about going out in a boat with an overzealous competitor. The problem is that when their mind gets stuck in the ‘I must win at any cost’ mode, they lose all common sense.
Imagine you are on a cruise boat at the top of the stairs and have been waiting patiently with your camera posed for ages. Your competitor in a fit of having to win could try to knock your camera out of your hands. If, however, instead of simply knocking your camera, you are launched down the cruiser stairs, you might need an accident solicitor.
