Newcastleton Overview

Close to Scotland/England border Newcastleton serves up a brilliant Blue Route and a riotous Red Route.

Village based trailhead with great facilities and bike hire close by. The best kept secret of the 7stanes?

The Trails

The Skills Area features blue and red-graded loops  and is a great wee blast whatever you're riding.

Blue Route

A fun introduction to real mountain biking.

The Red Route

Fast and flowy narrow singletrack goodness with an 'out there' feel.

Trail Conditions

Current at 24th April 2015

Trails: All open.

Douglas square in the centre of Newcastleton village is now the start/finish point for all the 7stanes mtb trails (Dykecroft trailhead now closed). 

All mtb routes (Blue and Red) now head from the village across a new bridge over the Liddel Water and climb up through Rock UK’s Outdoor Centre (2 way) then up a new mellow singletrack climb and forest roads to link into the existing trail network.  The return back to the village trailhead includes a super fun new singletrack descent.  Blue Route is now 9.7km, Red Route is now 23.7km.

Updated trail maps/guides now available. Please note:  the waymarker post numbers on the ground do not yet match the waymarker numbers on the new trail maps - we're in the process of updating them. 
The Skills Area is accessed off the Red MTB Route at post 4.
The Purple ‘Linns’ Route (all forest road based) is now closed. 

Conditions: Good.

Diversions: None.
