Tel: 01387 272440    Fax: 01387 251491

The centres are known as the 7stanes because when the project is completed each venue will have a 'stane' (Scots for stone!) somewhere along it. It might be at the start or it might be at the highest point - you'll have to wait and see! 7stanes offer several mountain bikes trails throughout Scotland. Centres in Dumfries & Galloway include locations at Kirroughtree Forest, Mabie Forest and Dalbeattie Forest. See the website for further details.
