If you haven’t experienced An Ceann Mor at Inveruglas, the 8m-high pyramid-shaped viewpoint on the west of Loch Lomond, we recommend you get your walking boots on and go. At the top of its 31 steps, the elevated views of Arrochar Alps and Ben Lomond are impressive. A tunnel through its centre opens up to reveal the same vistas for those with limited mobility. An Ceann Mor is the fourth installment for Scottish Scenic Routes, a Scottish government initiative designed to encourage visitors to see views in a new way.
This timber-clad structure, which will change colour and blend in with the landscape over time, was designed by Daniel Bar, Stephane Toussaint and Sean Edwards of BTE Architects after winning the competition to find young architects (practising for up to five years) to create four distinct installations in four geographically spread locations around Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.
