Macmillan Hunter creates beautiful garden sundials for sale in a range of stunning designs. These unique works are hand-built to individual order by specialist sundial maker Alastair Hunter in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. They can be personalised as an engraved sundial for you, making an excellent birthday, anniversary, retirement or wedding gift. Special commissions are welcome. Alastair follows in an old Scottish tradition of original sundial design. During the 18th century elaborate stone sundials were built in the gardens of grand Scottish houses. His designs are modern and reflect his experience in engineering. The sundials are armillary, horizontal, and vertical. A sundial is more than a garden ornament. It allows for meditation on the fleeting yet eternal nature of time. It invites you to chart the progress of the sun and seasons while reflecting on your own memorable hours.
