Campbeltown: Linda McCartney Memorial Garden

(Click on the photos to see a larger size, especially the top one to read about the McCartney's love of Kintyre)

It was a great experience recently to visit Kintyre and Campbeltown at last and especially to see the Linda McCartney Memorial Garden and statue there. Unfortunately we were there in May before the flowers had been planted - I'm sure it must be a lovely sight during the summer.

Click here for the Wikipedia page about Linda McCartney - there's even a picture of flowers around the feet of the statue.

The sculptor, Jane Robbins, is actually Paul McCartney's cousin - I didn't realise that until I got home and looked her up on the internet! Here is a link to her own website:
