Visited 3 of the 7 stanes when in Dumfries (others being Dalbeatie and Forest of Ae) and out of the 3 this one offers the most tame red route. Not very exciting but it's a nice enough place - good to go to build your...More

A great location for walking and Mountain Biking, has nice family trails, good greens and blues. Red trails is flowing with some technical features, but not a huge number ( not recommend for small children. Or basic skill level riders) Will revisit
