Whether you want a gentle stroll in the area or the challenge of a day’s expedition to the top of the hills of Cairnsmore , the choice is yours.
One of the World renowned 7Stanes is a stone’s throw from the cottage and Kirroughtree is home to some of the best single track in the country. For lesser mortals the Bargaly Wood trail is a pleasant leisurely ride ideal for first timers, families and children.
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 legend. Here at Kirroughtree the stone is a gem made from Scottish pink quartz taking its inspiration from the local Creetown Gem Rock Museum.
