About Threave Garden & Estate

Your clients can explore one of Scotland’s most biodiverse nature reserves, with a remarkable collection of wildlife, flora and fauna.

The garden has been created over the years by students of the Trust’s School of Heritage Gardening – and is a fine example of landscaped beauty. The garden is divided into a series of smaller gardens to showcase different gardening styles and planting schemes, including a rose garden, rockery and walled garden.

At the centre stands Threave House, designed in the Scottish Baronial style in 1871 for the Gordon family. Many of its rooms are displayed as they were in the 1930s.

Enjoy various walks across the estate and visit our flagship bat reserve.

Threave Garden & Estate is suitable for both group and FIT clients.


The experiences can be tailored. Contact us for more information.
