The Corbenic Poetry Path at StAnza
The walled courtyard garden at the Preservation Trust, right in the heart of St Andrews, offers a tranquil escape into nature’s colours, textures and sounds. For the duration of StAnza 2017, this will be enhanced with poetry sculptures from the Corbenic Poetry Path in Perthshire, which offers a showcase of the work of some of the very best and most active poets currently living and writing in Scotland.
Set in the grounds of the old Drumour Shooting Lodge and estate, the path meanders through a variety of terrains including open hillside, moorland, ancient native woodlands, hazel coppice, and riverbanks. The path has been designed with a variety of surfaces to be as sensitive as possible to the wild terrain it passes through. It curves and contours, rises and falls with the shape of the land offering a means of accessing quiet corners and magical places that would otherwise remain hidden and forgotten. The path has been made possible by, and is used regularly by, those who live in the Corbenic Community.
