Caledonia Way Interpretation and Wayfinding
These gates are a work of art - thanks to Chris Brammall. Here are a few pics and more will be added later – the way Chris is able to work with steel is fantastic – he says it is just like putty when you get it hot enough.
These gates are of course functional but rather than produce loads of interpretation panels situated on the Path these gates get across an interpretation message and yet provide a beauty and function. The theme of the Highland Galley is illustrated through the shape of the gates and the subjects within the gates are derived from school workshops done with Scottish Poet Norman Bissell.
The above drawing was the first design presented to Chris Brammall who then took the design and has made it is own. The gates now punctuate the Caledonia Way giving it an identity throughout the length from Oban to Ballachulish.
