Jupiter Artland

Parks & Gardens

Bonnington House Steadings, Nr Wilkieston, Edinburgh, West Lothian, EH27 8BB

    Set within the picturesque 80 acre estate of Bonnington House, Jupiter Artland is the brainchild of Nicky and Robert Wilson.



    The garden is a whimsical collaboration between the family, the artists and the landscape. All the works are site specific and personal to Jupiter.

    The end product is a journey, narrated by the various artists who are given the freedom to express themselves in the landscape. The transitory nature of the sculpture park makes it hard to believe it is only ten miles outside of Edinburgh.

    Full of surprises, from the initial confrontation of Charles Jencks' 'Life Mounds', which visitors drive through on entering the park, to the jovial creation by Jim Lambie, which both delights and astonishes. With no set routes through the park and an emphasis on exploration and discovery the individual is left to engage with the artworks and the land as a whole.

    Continuing the theme of self discovery, Jupiter values education and is committed to providing an educational resource for schools in the region and maintaining a charitable status.
