Braemar Highland Games centre wins approval
Cairngorms National Park have granted planning approval to a new Highland Games centre in Braemar, Royal Deeside, to celebrate the heritage of the annual event.

Prepared on behalf of the Braemar Royal Highland Society by James F. Stephen Architects the scheme incorporates a new grandstand and visitor centre to replace existing facilities.

Finished in horizontal timber weatherboard, painted pale green, the bandstand incorporates overhanging eaves for shelter and is intended to complement existing buildings within the park.

In their design statement the architects said: “The design intention of the curvi-linear leading edge at eaves level is to introduce a visual expression of the flick and swish of the kilt and the movement of the undulating Cairngorms skyline.”
