Since 2004 the CairnGorm Mountain Trust has been working with a number of partners to develop an artist-led initiative in the Cairngorms that aims to engage the visitor's understanding and experience of our mountain landscape.
Mountain to Sea - Beyond Site charts a visual journey from CairnGorm Mountain to 48 locations across Scotland following the four points of the compass. Four seasonal journeys were made over the course of a year from CairnGorm to the coast. Twelve equidistant points were measured along each directional axis, locations, chosen not for their picturesque qualitites but defined by their linear measured position in relation to the Mountain. The journeys were made moving North in winter, East in spring, South in summer and West in autumn during 2006 and 2007.
The result creates a unique opportunity to enrich our experience of the mountain by exposing what lies beyond our visual horizon.
No matter what the weather on the mountain, Beyond Site will give visitors an insight through digital imagery of what lies beyond the visual horizon.
