Flanders Moss

Robin Baker Architects

Flanders Moss Nature Reserve near Stirling is the largest 'raised bog' in Britain. It is managed by Scottish Natural Heritage who have constructed a 900m boardwalk and commissioned the new viewing tower to give visitors an elevated view to appreciate the spectacular views over the moss.

Constructed in green oak, with some posts over 8m long, the structure sits on a steel platform resting on steel mini piles driven 10m down through the peat moss into the clay below.
