Cycling and Mountain Biking Holidays in Scotland
In Scotland mountain biking is fast becoming our national sport. This area is the place and our accommodation is plumb central for the "seven stanes" and ideal for cycling holidays in Dumfries and Galloway.
All seven are within a 2 hour drive of our cycle friendly holiday accommodation, Mabie - 7 miles up the road between New Abbey and Dumfries and Dalbeattie 8 miles the other way - are the closest of them.
- More information can be had from www.7stanes.gov.uk .
There is also a mountain biking centre at Drumlanrig Castle.
The bicycle was invented by the estate blacksmith at Capenoch near Penpont and there is a memorial plaque there if you fancy a pilgrimage.
Or just go for a gentle cycle around the quiet estate roads ...
