Scenic Routes second round winners revealed
July 8 2014four new architectural interventions at Cairngorms National Park and the Caledonian Canal.
John Kennedy of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners emerged victorious with his bid to create a viewpoint on the A939 Cock Bridge to Tomintoul Road, at a spot overlooking the 16th century Corgarff Castle and Ben Avon in the heart of the Cairngorms.
Sean Douglas (Sutherland Hussey) and Gavin Murray (Elder & Cannon) meanwhile were selected to build a timber viewpoint at Laggan, on the shores of Loch Lochy, part of the Caledonian Canal.
Work on both schemes will now get underway for completion by the end of the year.
Two other schemes; the Devil’s Elbow at Glen Shee and Banavie, emerged with no overall winner however. Accounting for this discrepancy Scottish Canals said that both plots, “… did not attract sufficient quality in the entries to allow them to be taken forward for shortlisting.”
The body confirmed that each would be taken forward at a ‘later stage’.
Melissa Lawson and Ross Aitchison earned a highly commended award for this 'Forest-Loch-Reflection' at Laggan
Ruairidh C. Moir (BARD) gained a highly commended award for Na Crìochan 'Threshold of Territory', runner-up at Corgarff
