Living Stones & Megaliths. Sculpture in the Highlands
Eloise Bennett, Alasdair Milne, Rory O’Brien
There’s a weird history of monuments and megaliths in the central highlands. Today, Landmark is well-known in the north east as a Forest Adventure Park. Over the years it has accumulated attractions ranging from waterslides to a high-level treetop walk. But the early years of Landmark, in the late 70s, saw the placement of abstract, contemporary sculpture on its site. Described as ‘half garden, half primeval woodland’, the sculpture park carried the deep-time conventions of stone circles, packhorse bridges and cairns. Mostly forgotten, its legacy is considered here in the broader geocultural context of the region.
