Finlay moved to the farm of Stonypath in 1966 and, in partnership with his wife Sue Finlay, began to create what would become an internationally acclaimed garden across seven acres of a wild and exposed moorland site, set in the Pentland Hills, near Edinburgh. Little Sparta contains over 270 artworks set into what Finlay described as ‘specific landscapes’: distinct areas within the garden, each with its own character and mood.
