500 miles -nearly

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

It takes calves of steel to traverse the 96-mile West Highland Way, Scotland’s first official long-distance path. Architect Page\Park might have had this in mind when, creating a feature at Milngavie in East Dumbartonshire to mark the start of the route to Fort William, it plumped for a robust 25m long artwork of Corten steel and 96 timber posts. Guiding walkers down to the start at Allander Water, it informs them of the milestone sights they will experience on the breathtaking hike 100 miles northwards through the Highland landscape.
