Cally Gardens and Specialist Plant Centre

Cally Gardens and Specialist Plant Centre is a treasure trove of exotic and rare hardy plants gathered from around the globe. Rare and unusual plants can also be purchased from the nursery and expert advice is available from the owner. 

The fine18th century walls of what was once the kitchen garden for Cally House, now provide shelter to 1000s of rare and exotic plants. This garden is a must for any plant collector and the Specialist Plant Centre is bursting with rare and unique plants cultivated by the acclaimed plantsman Kevin Hughes. 

Threave Garden

Threave’s wonderful garden has been created over the years by students of the National Trust for Scotland'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 styles, 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.

The garden is in the care of The National Trust for Scotland.
