Dalbeattie Overview

With its coastal setting and the lack of any big hills, Dalbeattie has a relaxed feel.

However the riding is far from dull - the outcrops of rock and fine views make sure of that.

The Trails

Dalbeattie is world famous for its granite and it’s the rock that defines the riding at Dalbeattie. With a broad range of trails on offer you can look forward to a great experience.


A skills area with differently-graded loops gives a taste of Dalbeattie riding for those new to the area or to mountain biking.

Choose your trail from:

The green-graded Ironhash trail

Offering easy biking mostly on forest roads

The blue-graded Moyle Hill route

Will provide fun and excitement.

The red-graded Hardrock trail

Steps proceedings up a gear and offers more challenges with its rougher and rockier surface.

However the black graded sections - The Slab, Terrible Twins and Volunteer Ridge will set your heart racing!
