The Leaping Arch

By TrotterFechan
The Leaping Arch.

Check it out on my Flickr page.

The LEAPING ARCH, which is positioned in the Marr Burn, was commissioned by Richard, 10th Duke of Buccleuch and 12th Duke of Queensberry in 2009 and was designed and constructed by the internationally renowned and locally based artist Andy Goldsworthy.
The arch is built from sandstone extracted from the estates own quarry (where the Castle stone itself was sourced) and represents a salmon leaping upstream to its spawning ground.
