The Gardens at Balmacara are a beautiful, tranquil, calming and peaceful place to visit.
We have visited many times usually when the weather is too wet and windy for outdoor activities.
There are many small hidden bays and places to sit and watch and listen
Unfortunately the NTS no longer maintain the gardens due to cost, and this little garden with the sundial is beginning to get quite overgrown.
We have always enjoyed sitting in this little garden where you can hear the sea and the birds and occasionally spot an otter its really very tranquil.
The sundial was put there in memory of a couple who met and married during WW2 and the garden planted in their memory.
It is a lovely place but so sad that the garden is now becoming so over grown.
