Threave Gardens

Located a mile (1.5 km) west of Castle Douglas and a similar distance southeast of the village of Threave and within Dumfries and Galloway, Threave Gardens cover an area of 26 ha (64 acres) and are renowned for their spring daffodil displays, colourful summer displays and splendid heather beds in autumn.

The National Trust's School for Practical Gardening is located in Threave House, a fine baronial mansion dating from 1871-3 located at the centre of the gardens. A visitor centre, taking the form of an octagonal pavilion, was built in 1975.
