Attraction Information


Threave Castle
On an island in the River Dee stands Threave Castle, a massive 14th century tower built by Archibald the Grim, Lord of Galloway.
The stronghold of the Black Douglases, it has at its base an artillery fortification built before 1455 when James II besieged the castle.
A path and steep steps lead to a small boat making it unsuitable for visitors using a wheelchair or buggy. After a short boat trip, more mobile visitors can visit the ticket office and curtain wall. The castle has steep steps inside and out.
Parking available about half a mile from the boat dock. Please allow 15 minutes from the carpark to walk to the boat dock. The last boat departs at 16.30.
Toilets available at the car park are adapted.
