Jupiter Artland

Cornelia Parker, '"Landscape with Gun and Tree"', cast iron and corten steel, 14 August 2010. This piece by Cornelia Parker is based on Gainsborough's "Mr and Mrs Andrews" of a couple posed under a tree with Mr Andrews carrying the gun. Here the gun has been left leaning against a tree, possibly loaded. Photo: Ann Shaw.

It's not often I rave about work I see these days but I was gobsmacked at the quality and quantity of sculpture in Jupiter Artland the private sculpture park near Edinburgh opened last year.

These are some of the sculptors: Anish Kapoor, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Antony Gormley, Andy Goldsworthy, Mac Quinn, Cornelia Parker and Charles Jencks.

Well worth a visit. Or Google Jupiter Artland.
