Threave Garden And Estate

Parks & Gardens

Threave Estate, Castle Douglas, Dumfries And Galloway, DG7 1RX

    This garden for all seasons is renowned for its springtime daffodils, herbaceous beds ablaze with colour in summer and dense heather gardens in autumn.

    Among Threave Garden’s numerous highlights are the informal Rose Garden, the herbaceous perennials and the one-acre Walled Garden with its wonderful temperate glasshouse collection.

    The estate is a wildfowl refuge and a designated Special Protection Area for breeding waders and wintering waterfowl. This has led to Threave's wetlands been designated as an Area of Special Scientific Interest.

    There is a network of waymarked trails to explore, such as the 2.5km estate trail through a variety of landscapes, with hides providing good cover to observe and enjoy the abundant wildlife.

    The beauty of the gardens add to the majesty of Threave House whose interior have been carefully restored to the 1930s appearance. The estate restaurant and shop complete a great family day out.
