Location of 'Ploughman' within the Scottish Parliament

'The poem (Ploughman) is a permanent part of the Scottish Parliament's Art Collection and will be retained in the collection and displayed on a rotational basis.

Currently the poem is on display in the area outside the Members' Restaurant, in close proximity to the Arniston Stone and the artwork Hinterland by Norma Starskowna.

The area is accessed by the many visitors who participate in the public tours. Other visitors would be required to make arrangements in order to view the poem, as it is in a passholder area of the building.

Visitor Services regularly assist visitors with enquiries about the location of works within the building.'
