The Garden of Cosmic Speculation – Scotland
Open to the public only one day a year, the Garden of Cosmic Speculation takes science and
maths as its inspiration. Quite simply, there isn't another garden like it in
the world. It was set up in 1989 without the usual ideas people have when
they create a garden. Horticultural displays very much take second place in
this garden. Instead, it is designed with ideas in mind - and to provoke
thought (or at least speculation) about the very nature of things.

woods, grasslands and marshes were. The earth was transported in wheelbarrows,
the trees were conveyed by cart from all the provinces of France and
thousands of men, sometimes whole regiments, took part in this vast
