It is a very peaceful area of the cemetery, and I was glad to go and give my respect to those lies that were cut so short The Scottish swell as the Americans.A walk through the nature reserve opposite is lovely too.
The Center , at the Cemetery gate , had a lot of extra details about the victims , the fire & damage to Lockerbie town , plus a local nature & wildlife display .

Logan Botanic Garden Port Logan

Quite exciting for us let alone kids, exploring the many pathways, through the fern palms and pretending it was Jurassic park.
It was a roasting hot day when I visited which together with the tropical nature of the walled gardens made it feel as if I was on my holidays.

A great chance for the young to be introduced to these animals and be encouraged to see nature at its best rather than the tabs and mobiles.
