Mosaic Panel

To introduce the new Hidden Heritage Trail, mosaicist, geologist and archaeologist Dugald MacInnes created an interpretation panel made out of local Luss slate. It depicts the isthmus of land connecting the sea with Loch Lomond, and the mountains on either side that create a natural 'corridor', encouraging people to travel between them. The mosaic also highlights the three villages of Tarbet, Arrochar and Succoth that form the community based around the isthmus.

Dugald produced the mosaic after a workshop at Arrochar Primary School where he collected ideas from the children about the landscape that they live in, and about the isthmus of land that they cross to get to and from school.

Thanks to Luss Estates for their generous donation of slate for this project.
