One of three scenic route installation on the Snow Roads enticing you to discover new perspectives on stunning viewpoints. Connecting Contours by Daniel Smith and Philip Zoechbauer offers a place of quiet contemplation surrounded by Glenshee hills.
Located at the southern edge of the Cairngorms National Park, the Devil’s Elbow is a site of beauty and simplicity. Connecting Contours seeks to enhance this dramatic setting by creating a subtle and respectful intervention, drawing on the contours of the landscape to create a new meandering walkway sculpted into the hillside.
The site presents dramatic views to the South of the Devil’s Elbow and, as part of the installation, a new path and seating area acts as a ‘theatre of the landscape’ and a place to sit, pause and take in the striking views as they change in the Scottish light. The seating is made from white acid-etched precast concrete units and draw on the white lines of existing scree slopes on the hills of the valley.
