Sublime Experience in the Hermitage Wilderness Garden: Shannon Fraser

About Sublime Experience in the Hermitage Wilderness Garden: Shannon Fraser

The Forth and Borders Group of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland teams up with Scotland's Garden and Landscape Heritage for a lecture and discussion of the Hermitage at Dunkeld.

In the company of knowledgeable people and enthusiasts, we will hear about the fashion for the sublime and the Picturesque from an expert in the field.

Shannon Fraser, a professional archaeologist, formerly of the National Trust for Scotland and now the National Trust’s Curator for Northern Ireland, directed a 15-year research programme at the Hermitage. Driven partly by a substantial building conservation project at Ossian’s Hall, an 18th-century garden pavilion, and partly by remedial works at the Hermitage following damage from a major flood in 2004, the results of this research have considerably expanded our understanding of the design philosophies of the Dukes of Atholl. This is our annual joint lecture with Scotland’s Garden and Landscape Heritage.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Sublime Experience in the Hermitage Wilderness Garden: Shannon Fraser are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
