Threave Garden is in fact a series of spectacular gardens created over the years by students of the Trust's School of Heritage Gardening.

Open all year, you can enjoy the delights of these gardens in every season - from spring flowers, through summer blooms, autumn colours and winter frosts.

Take time to explore the rock garden, patio garden, secret garden, water features, heathers, conifers and herbaceous perennials.

The walled garden and glasshouses display succulent fruit and vegetables - sometimes our produce is available for visitors to buy, but mostly it is used in the Terrace Cafe to create delicious home cooked meals, soups, snacks and baking.

In the fine Scottish Baronial style house, many rooms are displayed as they were in the 1930s. On a guided tour you can find out about the history of the house and the Gordon family who had it built in 1872. Admission to the house is by guided tour only, usually on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday (Easter to October). Booking in advance is advisable.

Threave is also a designated Bat Reserve - follow the bat trail to spot our wonderful rare bats.

There are delightful woodland walks just beyond the garden and further afield there is the nature reserve (towards Threave Castle and the River Dee), which includes bird hides and an Osprey viewing platform.

This is a Special Protection Area for breeding waders and wintering wildfowl - pink-footed geese and Greenland white-fronted geese are also regular visitors.

Dogs: please note that dogs, other than Assistance Dogs, are not permitted in Threave Garden. This is the enclosed garden where there is an entrance charge, or free admission to NTS members.

Dog owners are most welcome to walk their dogs over the rest of the Threave Estate – the beautiful areas beside the drive, the estate walk, and the wider nature reserve (Kelton Mains).
