Threave Castle, Scotland

Threave Castle was built in the late 14th century by Archibald the Grim, 3rd Earl of Dougla,on a small island on the River Dee. At this time Threave was the centre of power in Galloway. Another title for this family was The Black Douglas's.

Location: Threave Castle is to be found west of Castle Douglas, off the A75, once off the A75 you continue along a farm track to a parking area at the Kelton Mains Farm. From here continue on foot along a good path through the farmland for 3/4 of a mile. Once you come to the paths end a 2 minute boat trip takes across to Threave Island, on which the castle is sited. All of which makes a visit to Threave Castle a memorable day out.
