The Renowned 7 Stanes Mountain Biking Trails

Mountain Biking

7 Stanes

The 7stanes are seven mountain biking centres spanning the south of Scotland, from the heart of the Scottish Borders to Dumfries and Galloway. 'Stane' is the Scots word for stone, and at each of the 7stanes locations, you'll find a stone sculpture reflecting a local myth or legends.
The stanes are found out on the trails in the forests, in prominent locations near cycling and walking paths. They’re accessible on foot or by horse as well as by bike, and range in size from one to three metres high and from two to six tons in weight.

The Heart Stone, Dalbeattie Mabie Forest
Mabie forest, the original mountain biking venue in the South West of Scotland, lies just a short distance from Netherfield Farm and caters for beginners right through to the most expert of riders. With a skills area, café, bike hire and shop on site, it is definitely not to missed.

Dalbeattie Forest

With its coastal setting and the lack of any big hills, Dalbeattie has a relaxed feel, but the riding is far from dull - the outcrops of rock and fine views make sure of that. Dalbeattie Forest is only a short drive from Netherfield Farm.
