A new garden combined with old natural woodland. The garden is of some historic significance in that the remains of an aqueduct dug during the famine as a relief project to convey water to a corn mill two miles away is still visible. Indeed stone mill wheels, a famine pot and lots of bog oak also feature. The entrance to the house is built with stone in the same manner as an ancient fort on the farm.
Admission: €5 donation to charity
Directions: In Stranorlar take N13 towards Letterkenny and after 500 metres turn left at Presbyterian Church. Travel one mile without turning left or right. Garden is on an elevated site on right.
