Threave Garden & Nature Reserve

World-renowned garden and nature reserve
A red sandstone tower house stands in a large garden towards the top of a hill. In front is a lawn covered in white-yellow daffodils. Tall trees grow in woodland either side of the house.

Home to the National Trust for Scotland’s internationally renowned School of Heritage Gardening, Threave’s world-famous gardens and beautifully restored country house combine to make a spectacular venue for weddings, corporate events and private parties.

In the heart of glorious Dumfries and Galloway, Threave Garden & Estate is just 1 mile from Castle Douglas, Scotland’s ‘Food Town’.
