Threave Garden & Estate

Castles & Country Houses, Gardens & Parks, Museums & Art Centres
Threave House is surrounded by a 607 ha (1,500 acres) estate and 26 ha (64 acres) of gardens. The estate was developed in 1867 by William Gordon, after he had acquired it in that year.

The house and estate were donated to the National Trust for Scotland by Major Alan Gordon upon his death in 1957.

The gardens, divided into a series of different garden rooms, are open to the public and is home to the Practical School of Horticulture.

The house is hosting students for the school, whereas the principal rooms of the house have been restored as a museum.
