Enter a secretive world of sculpture gardens and hidden artworks in unexpected places. Jupiter Artland in the grounds of Bonnington House, Edinburgh is a work-in-progress where you will always discover new art; and beneath the Pentland Hills find Little Sparta, a sculpture garden created by Scottish artist and writer Ian Hamilton Finlay.
Head out of the city to Cairnhead, Dumfries & Galloway where Andy Goldworthy’s red sandstone Striding Arches crown the land. Sculpture lovers will also enjoy Tyrebagger Wood, Aberdeenshire.
The celebrated outdoor sculpture park opens its doors for the fifth summer season with works on show by Anya Gallacio, Andy Goldsworthy, Henry Castle, Antony Gormley, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Charles Jencks, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker and others.
Quantum Theatre's production of these two much-loved tales, the first concerning the misadventures of the well-known mischievous rabbit, and the second about how his cousin helps him to overcome post-traumatic stress disorder and retrieve his clothes from Mr McGregor's scarecrow.
Oscar Wilde's comedy of bachelors, ladies, an aunt and a handbag-shaped McGuffin is still as crisp as a table water biscuit. See it, weather permitting, in the outdoor surroundings of the Carriage Ring, immediately in front of Culzean Castle.
