This 7stanes centre in the south of Scotland has become a firm favourite with mountain bikers. For those travelling from central Scotland, or from England, it is a little further away than the cluster of 7stanes centres close to Dumfries, at Ae, Mabie and Dalbeattie. However, the journey is certainly worth it. What you find at Kirroughtree is a mountain biking experience that is at the tougher, more epic end of the scale.
The green and blue routes at Kirroughtree will prove attractive to the inexperienced rider while the red and black options will delight the more experienced. The Twister is a 17 km red-graded route with trails skirting Bargaly Glen. It is also at the more technical end for a red route, with some serious rock steps, chokes, slaps and drop offs. But it is nothing compared to the 31 km Black Craigs which takes you out into the countryside.
The final swooping descent takes you through magnificent fir trees and lands you back at the visitor centre for welcome refreshments. Bike hire, spares and repairs are also available from the on-site shop, The Breakpad.
The Kirroughtree red and black trails are tough and unrelenting, tight and intricate, the scale is epic and it will appeal to those with a sense of adventure.
Turn off the A75, 3 miles east of Newton Stewart at Palnire - signposted 'Galloway Forest Park' - then follow signs for Kirroughtree visitor centre.
