A lovely peaceful garden, well designed and I am sure John would love it. The verses on the standing stones were lovely.

John Lennon came to the Durness area as a child so this garden was created to honor his time in Durness. Lovely, small memorial to him.

We stopped here on our tour of the Highlands and were quite surprised to find this little gem of a village and it's ties to John and this small memorial garden was a walk back in time to when a great man walked the area.

There's parking. And a lovely little garden to remember John Lennon and reflect on his life and the music he made.

The memorial is nice - the story is lovely - from Liverpool to Inverness by train then bus to Durness at the northernmost point of mainland UK. A young John Lennon on his hols!

This came as a bit of a surprise - a tranquil little garden beside the community hall. Great place and to sit and soak at n the atmosphere.

We made a quick stop here on our North Coast 500 trip. It's touching that the people of Durness have set up this memorial. Very simple. Nice quotes on the standing slabs.
