Architectural guide to the Highland coastline launched

 Architectural guide to the Highland coastline launched
An architectural guide to the Highland coastline has been produced to document 48 structures from the Kylesku Bridge to Culloden Visitor Centre along Britain’s northernmost extremity.

North Coast 500 has been compiled by architect Catriona Hill who has condensed the regions architectural heritage into an A6 pamphlet of photos and sketches for the Festival of Architecture.

Distributed at key points along the route the document will take tourists on a journey past the likes of the Lochcarron treehouse, designed by Alex Shirley Smith; a timber clad boathouse designed by Law Dunbar Nasmith and the Rock Room at Knockan Crag by Gilbert Associates.

The pamphlet will also be available at the RIAS bookshop and selected visitor centres.

Definable scope here to develop a Norwegian tourist routes style series of viewpoints and/or facilities. Its a shame the Scottish Scenic Routes project seems to be limited to the national parks, rather than developing routes further afield

This is a wonderful guide. I wish more architects would consider employing really good graphic designers though.
