Upper Deeside Access Trust | Glen Tanar, Scotland 2005 - 2006

Architect's Journal Small Projects Awards 2007

Linking a historic right of way between Royal Deeside and Angus, the Glen Tanar Bridge is part of a historic cattle droving route, now a popular with walkers and cyclists exploring the Cairngorm National Park or heading to nearby Mount Keen.

Its 17m span meets each bank with concrete abutments designed to blend into the landscape, helping the bridge to feel as if a part of its surrounding – natural, informal and with an appeal of time-tested craftsmanship.
