A tour in and around Edinburgh looking at the point where art and follies meet. Can art in the landscape ever be a folly? On the Saturday we will see traditional follies in the centre of Edinburgh and then visit a sculpture garden on the outskirts of the city where there are modern follies amongst the landscape art. On Sunday we will visit a ‘poet’s garden’ about one hour by road from Edinburgh – an intriguing and thought provoking garden that is neither a folly or a sculpture garden.
Saturday – in the morning there will be some street walking and you will need to be able to climb Carlton Hill. In the afternoon the sculpture garden is easily accessible. On Sunday there is a walk of about 700 metres from the car park to the garden, although disabled access can be arranged. Both gardens are relatively flat and easy walking.
Transport – for those without cars this can be arranged, either car share or a minibus depending on numbers. There would be an extra charge for a minibus – this will depend on the numbers travelling but is likely to be £25 – £35 for the weekend.
Please note that this event is now full.
