Visitors can enjoy seeing the new sundial at the National Trust for Scotland’s Inverewe Garden, installed on 1 April in time for the summer season. June 15th is one of the four days in the year that sundials and clocks read the same time. September 1st, and December 25th, are two more days still to come, and April 15th next year is the fourth one. It will be an extra excitement on Christmas Day looking to see if the sundial reads the right time, providing the sun shines of course.
Property Manager, Roy Dowsett, said, “The sundial is attracting a lot of interest. People study and discuss it for a long time, after they come through the garden and see it near the house. It really is an intriguing sculpture. We are very pleased to have it in our garden.”
