This was my first visit to Threave. The azaleas and rhoddies were at their best. The estate walk to Threave Castle is well worth it even if just to see the osprey on her nest. The garden shop at the visitor centre is very well stocked and we went home with many plants. A very enjoyable experience David

All round family day out. Walking round the beautiful grounds and gardens. Bird watching and red Squirrels. Play area for kids, cafes . Such a beautiful place. If you like birds there is a walk across the wetlands to the Loch with bird hides and a chance to see Ospreys. Threave House was closed when we visited, but we still managed to fill four hours there. It was really good. Highly recommended.

Amazing display of daffodils. Many different varieties with varying flowering times giving an impressively long season. The entire garden is beautifully designed and meticulously maintained - a jewel in the Trust's crown.
