The brand-new Great Tapestry of Scotland Visitor Centre was commissioned to provide a permanent display for the Great Tapestry of Scotland and was designed by Page and Park Architects. The layout of the building allows for the display of all the tapestry panels in a series of top-lit bays. The windows at the corner of the building give visitors a view great view of the town and hills beyond.
The materials were chosen to match those used elsewhere in the town and, as the building sits in the valley, the varied roof form can be seen from the surrounding areas. The adjacent former Free-Renaissance-style Head Post Office, which dates back to 1894, was incorporated into the Visitor Centre and houses a modern, multi-purpose room. You can find out more on their website.
