We were staying 5mins away in Colintraive and thought why not visit. It’s amazing the location is great you walk around the grounds of a magnificent mansion and there is sculpture everywhere- you can also buy some. Kids aged 9 and 13 loved it which...More

We went to visit this wonderful sculpture park today. As my husband is registered blind and has very minimal sight, the host Karen offered to take us around. She generously gave us her time and drove us to the various sculptures explaining the background to...More

Interesting visit, a bit disappointed there were not so many exhibits as previously, a plus point is that there are now toilets in the house, maybe more visitors would be attracted if teas etc were laid on at weekends.

We went here on a truly miserable day. Put on our kagools, waterproofs and with umbrella we wandered throughout the park. Truly amazing and in such a beautiful location. Well worth a detour.

On arriving it is hard not be overly nosey about the house, the stained glass in the entrance hall is most unusual and very beautiful. Our greeting was friendly and informative and set a lovely tone for our visit. There is no formal route around...More

Interesting morning looking around and finding the sculptures - a bit random and Archie biting at the lead to be let off. Cannot make my mind up about the place, was nice getting to see, but a must see exhibition I doubt.

Spent a very happy couple of hours here. Some incredible works in a sublime setting. We came away real fans of a couple of artists and are researching the possibility of buying from one of them. Our ten year old daughter was enchanted to be...More

It may be out of the way - but isn't everywhere in Scotland - but it is so worth the journey - and isn't everywhere in Scotland. One of the most glorious places in the British Isles and a perfect backdrop to some really interesting...More

It is a family home now and you can not stay in the house or grounds. It is open in the summer months as a Sculpture Park with lots of lovely art works displayed all round the garden. It is well worth a visit as it is a... More
