The journey to the view point starts in the visitor centre car park, following a new accessible path through the trees and then through the new structure where the panoramic view is then revealed. Visitors can then climb up to the top of the viewpoint, sit and take in the stunning elevated views of Loch Lomond and the surrounding mountains. At eight metres high, pyramid-shaped An Ceann Mòr is set to be the focus of many selfies!
There are 31 steps to the top, providing an elevated vista of the views across Loch Lomond.
The viewpoint was officially unveiled by Richard Lochhead MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment on 13 May 2015. Designed by young architectural practice, BTE, An Ceann Mòr has been designed to the highest standards of accessibility and sustainability with people who have limited mobility able to venture through the “tunnel” to be presented with spectacular views of the Arrochar Alps in the west across Loch Lomond to Ben Lomond in the middle distance.
The Scottish Scenic Routes project was created in 2013 to promote rural economies, provide young architects with opportunities and to enhance the visitor experience of the Scottish landscape. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are proud to house 4 of the 8 installations.
As a new project it is still being evaluated, therefore we would kindly ask you to fill out the following survey in support of a Masters student project helping with the evaluation, if you have visited Inveruglas or any of the other structures in the Loch Lomond area – https://survey.napier.ac.uk/n/zz3b4.aspx.
