We went from the Dalbeattie town part of the forest as better for walkers and dogs (2 mins in car). What a lovely walk this is in the forest and there is a nice Loch too. Really worth a visit if your in the area.

Spent a couple of hours round the red route. Nothing to technical and really good flowing natural trails. Thoroughly enjoyed the trails and would recommend.

Well planned course without massive climbs. Lots of undulation and some interesting features. Basic toulet facilities, plenty of car park space (£3 coins for full day parking), and a lovely little cafe. Hose for washing bikes also there. Be careful near end as dog walkers...More
