The Westwater Building
This modest pavilion teaching building, nestles into the site at the foot of the Ochil Hills alongside the impressive principle school building, designed by William Henry Playfair. It forms a component of the Scottish public school’s new ‘Teaching L’ which edges the all weather hockey pitch, conceived as an open ‘quad’ at the heart of the campus.
This public school is at the foot of the Ochil Hills, in Clackmannanshire.
