TEMPLE OF APOLLO – Ian Hamilton Finlay

The formal gardens, meadows and woodland around the Jacobean house have been adapted to create a unique sculpture park across the 100 acre estate.

The owners, art collectors Robert and Nicky Wilson, have spent the years since buying the house and grounds in 1999 commissioning art works inspired by the landscape.

Any money raised from events, exhibitions etc is put towards an education programme so that children in Scotland can benefit from the inspiring environment at Jupiter Artland.
