This hidden gem, was SO worth a visit. Every aspect of it is considered and thoughtfully constructed paying a real homage to Joey and Robert Dunlop. Its listed as a memorial and botanical garden, and it was lovely to see a hornbeam tree and other rare additions set with the tributes, excesses of flowers softening the edges of the memorials. It is very easy to miss, to just drive past on the main road, but there is good parking off road behind the gardens with a short walk, and a little more difficult approach for wheelchair users or folks with mobility problems... although the gardens themselves are very accessibility friendly... and there are several bench seats placed around the entire area for a quiet sit and contemplation. It was humbling to read the tiny plaque placed on Joey Dunlop's statue... bringing all of this to a very human level after seeing ALL of his and Robert's successes listed in black marble.
