Cycling in south west Scotland ...

The unspoilt country of Dumfries and Galloway in south west ScotlandDid you know that Dumfries and Galloway is the home of cycling? The bicycle was invented by Kirkpatrick McMillan near Thornhill in 1840.

This area offers the place and pace to suit the cyclist, with unspoilt scenery, contrasting landscapes, a mild climate and a wealth of history and heritage to explore. There are a number of signposted routes here in the Machars –ask at reception. In fact if you want to cycle and then plan with us in advance we can arrange to come and collect you, especially good if the weather looks like changing!

However, if you are looking for exhilarating action, try one of the off-road trails or mountain bike centres.
