Threave Garden is best known for its magnificent display of nearly 200 different varieties of springtime daffodils - yet this is very much a garden for all seasons. Highlights include the informal rose garden; the herbaceous perennials; and the one-acre walled garden with its wonderful temperate glasshouse collection.

The principal rooms of the Scottish Baronial style Threave House are now open to visitors and have been fully restored to the way they were in the 1930s. The Countryside Centre features interactive displays and an introduction to the wider 1,500-acre estate, home to a wildfowl sanctuary.
