Stonypath, Dunsyre ML11 8NG
Set in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh, Little Sparta is Ian Hamilton Finlay’s greatest work of art. Imbued with a high idea content, the garden is created from the artistic fusion of poetic and sculptural elements with those of the natural landscape which is shaped and changed to become an inherent part of the concepts realised at Little Sparta.
It is open to the public in June, July, August and September on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday afternoons, 2:30-5pm.
