An Cala is a fine garden designed by Thomas Mawson in the early 1930s, tucked between the rocky cliffs and the sea. A formal terrace built from local slate is complemented by winding paths and meandering streams with dams in many places to make little pools or waterfalls - perfect for growing marginal or bog plants. There is colourful planting throughout - Poulsen roses, Japanese cherry trees, Ghent azaleas and escallonia hedges are just some of the original plants that have survived to this day. A fifteen foot wall of grey bricks stands as a barrier to protect the garden from the Atlantic gales.
