The Temple of the Muses
The Temple of the Muses
This circular nine columned gazebo, topped by a bust of James Thomson, stands on a mound overlooking the River Tweed at the west end of the village of Dryburgh.
It is dedicated to the poet James Thomson, author of The Seasons. The temple originally contained a stone statue of the Apollo Belvedere on a circular pedestal showing nine Muses with laurel wreaths. Bronze figures of the Four Seasons by Siobhan O' Hehir were installed as a replacement in 2002.
