One of the National Trust for Scotland’s top ten most visited attractions, Threave Estate is the perfect place for a family day out – or two: there’s so much to see and do here, you may not fit it all in to one visit.

The estate is split into four main elements: Threave House, a restored Scottish baronial-style house; Threave Garden, made up of landscaped gardens and themed ‘rooms’; Threave Sculpture Garden, containing over 30 works by Scottish sculptors; and Threave Nature Reserve, featuring landscape ranging from wetlands to woodlands.

Whichever part of the estate you’re in, you’ll see some of Threave’s famous wildlife – it’s one of Scotland’s bat hotspots, as well as a wildfowl sanctuary, and birds of all kinds flock here throughout the year.

In 2014, Threave was granted approval to deliver RHS practical qualifications following a moderation visit from an RHS Centre approval verifier. Find out more here.

In 2013 Threave was voted second in The Independent's '10 Best Gardens to Visit in the UK'. Click here to read the full article.
