Colin Cunningham discusses the poem "The Country Seat", written by Sir John Clerk of Penicuik in the 1720s. Sir John was a leading member of the Scottish Enlightenment, and a patron of th...e arts. His poem, though never published, elegantly sums up the recipe for the gentleman's country seat and its garden, and outlines the practical and aesthetic aspects of the subject.
