The Cairngorms Scenice Route Project has won two awards at the prestigious Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning.
The awards celebrate achievements in planning, from the detail of processing to the bigger picture of creating places – and for the ‘Snow Roads’ this meant awards in the Place category as well as winning the People’s Choice award.
The ‘Snow Roads’ is an outstanding mountainous journey through the Cairngorms National Park linking Blairgowrie (A93) to Grantown-on-Spey (A939) via Glenshee, Braemar, Ballater The Lecht and Tomintoul. It is the highest ‘A’ road in Britain and is already a destination for classic car, motor bike enthusiasts and road cyclists, traversing eastern Cairngorms through remote, wild, breath-taking landscapes and vibrant historic communities with castles, distilleries, ski centres and much more.
We are delighted to have design developed, manufactured and installed sculptural interventions along the route including 'Still' at Tomintoul and 'The Watchers' at Corgarff. You can find out more about the awards and projects here:
