Falls of Falloch

The Falls of Falloch (Eas Falloch in Scottish Gaelic; meaning the Hidden Falls)

Falls of Falloch

John Kennedy designed ‘Woven Sound’ to provide a sheltered space to experience the Falls of Falloch at closer range – providing a brand new viewpoint to take in the thundering falls. Cantilevering over the edge of the water, the shelter takes the form of a long trellis of intricately woven-together steel rods that weaves its way between existing trees to avoid damaging the natural beauty of the site creating a sculptural, subtle form. This robust, inexpensive material allows the shelter to have a very discrete presence, which doesn’t detract from the Falls themselves. A diary entry from Dorothy Wordsworth recalling the numerous Romantic writers and painters who visited the Falls in the early 19th century is etched into the dappled steel at the viewpoint.
