Forsinard Lookout Tower
New lookout tower constructed on the edge of “The Flow Country”, part of the largest blanket bog systems in the world. The structure sits on a steel chasse supported on steel walled piles and is clad in Scottish Larch. The tower provides visitors with elevated views over the peat bogs and is also excellent for stargazing. We provided cost consultancy services while options were being considered and the design was being refined.
