Threave Castle, in the care of Historic Scotland (HES), lies in the National Trust for Scotland Threave Estate. It was subjected to flooding as a result of ‘Storm Desmond’. The path through the estate is clearly marked by Ministry signs directing visitors to the ferry.

The castle lies on an island in the middle of the river Dee and is reached by the official ferry.
