What is THE CRAWICK MULTIVERSE About?

Nestled within the rolling hills of Upper Nithsdale in Dumfries and Galloway, this major land restoration project has transformed a former open cast coal mine into a spectacular artland and public amenity.

The ecology of the site, and the materials found within it, inspired its design which is based around space, astronomy and cosmology. Today the site is cared for by the Crawick Multiverse Trust, a charity registered in Scotland (SCO39940). By visiting us, you are helping preserve and maintain Crawick Multiverse for the present and for future generations.

WHAT WILL I SEE AT CRAWICK MULTIVERSE?

There are many reasons for visiting Crawick. You may appreciate the artistic landscape, unique landforms, or enjoy following Charles Jencks’ projects.

Or perhaps you have an interest in cosmology or science? Both come together beautifully at Crawick through land art. Here you can walk through comet explosions, the Milky Way spirals, and the North-South Line from the Belvedere.

Amazingly, the perspective and reaction when on the site, varies throughout the elevations as you view the various landforms and their relationship to the surrounding land and sky scapes.

There is no doubt the site looks fantastic on a bright clear day, a climb up to Belvedere, the highest point on site, offers spectacular views not only of the site itself, but also the surrounding valley and beyond. However on a slightly more dreich day, the Multiverse takes on a completely different perspective. Mist and moody skies create a stunning backdrop to the landforms and make for a very atmospheric visit.
