7 Stanes Mountain Biking
7 Stanes at Kirroughtree – MBR Trail of the Year 2010
“Kirroughtree is simply fantastic – one of the best manmade trails ever created.”
Because of it's central location to both Glentrool and Kirroughtree, with Dalbeattie nearby, Newton Stewart is an ideal base to explore the best that the 7stanes and the area have to offer.
The 7stanes pushes the concept of mountain biking into new and higher realms - bringing out the best of the hills and forests of southern Scotland through the use of the area's plentiful natural resources of timber and stone.
Trails in Dumfries & Galloway range from easy family routes to technical expert runs and some of Scotland’s best single track.
“Overall this is a fantastic, as good as it gets trail, as well as a real physical workout if you ride hard, all topped off with a smart café."
“Kirroughtree is only a 10 minute ride down the road from Newton Stewart”
