Nice garden with tenuous link to John Lennon. Only requires a few minutes to walk round but nicely laid out.

Imagine....Finding a memorial garden to John Lennon on the Northern edge of Scotland, but the link is there if you read the plaque. If you are passing, call and spend 5 minutes, and that is all it will take. Don’t go out of your way...More

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

This garden is a good tribute to the late John Lennon and fans will love to see it and know of the thought which has gone into it. It is a small garden by the village hall on the outskirts of the village of Durness....More

Was over from Orkney on a day trip and This was a nice surprise as I didn’t know the memorial garden existed in north Scotland.

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!
