Jupiter Artland is an unique resource showcasing contemporary sculpture in a constantly changing environment.

Land-sculptures, terraced earthworks with embedded paths by Charles Jencks remain but are never the same through changing light and weather.

Exploring the estate reveals works by others artists- Nathan Coley, Alec Finlay, Laura Ford, Andy Goldsworthy, Antony Gormley, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Anish Kapoor, Jim Lambie, Peter Liversidge, Cornelia Parker, Marc Quinn and Shane Waltener.

The artist in residence, gallery exhibitions and events ensure there’s something new each year.

The Jupiter experience is one that everyone can appreciate but especially if you love creative arts.

Conveniently located in a country estate close enough to have views of the Forth Railway Bridge and the Edinburgh skyline, Jupiter Artland is a worth a visit locals and tourists.
