Caol Ruadh Sculpture Park, Colintraive

4.6
Karen Scotland and Anne Edmonds both grew up in the great outdoors, Australia and Northern Canada respectively. Their combined skills in art and design, and achieving a BA(Hons) degree in Landscape Architecture at Kingston University directed Karen Scotland and Anne Edmonds’ ambition to create a sculpture park at Karen’s Scottish home on the Kyles of Bute. Both women have spent the last twenty years designing and working around interiors and gardens. Anne’s period working at the National Theatre’s scenery department gave her an insight into the spatial element of design, while Karen’s experience in built design enables construction problems to be more easily overcome.

Having the magnificent setting of Caol Ruadh as a palette will make this sculpture park a memorable starting point to explore art in the Argyll landscape.
