The beautiful Japanese Garden, near Dollar is centred around a lake, with meandering paths which can be wandered around to take in the changing views. It’s also Strathcarron Hospice’s chosen location for its first in-person Memory Walk on Sunday 6th November.

The charity’s doing the Memory Walk to mark Absent Friends Week 1st-7th November 2022. To Absent Friends gives people across Scotland an excuse to remember, to tell stories, to celebrate and to reminisce about people we love who have died. Walk to remember your loved one in the picturesque and tranquil setting of the Japanese Garden. The large pond gives a sense of expansion and openness, while offering the opportunity for reflections of the garden and the sky. It also features two bridges - the ‘yatsuhashi’ zigzag bridge and the ‘sorihashi’ arched bridge - which, in Japanese culture, symbolise our journey through life.  

There will be the opportunity to place your message on the memory tree and to join Strathcarron for a reading of reflection. 

The registration fee of £12pp covers the cost of putting on our ‘Life, Love, Memories’ walk, and each participant will receive a special memory walk badge, Strathcarron Hospice buff along with entry into the beautiful Japanese Garden. 

There is limited places available for this event, please secure your place early to avoid disappointment. With your support Strathcarron Hospice can continue to care for your loved ones for generations to come.
