7 Stanes Glentrool MTB Trail Centre

This mountain bike trail centre is well placed within the Galloway Forest, the heart of Galloway. Glentrool’s wilderness offers diverse bike rides, history and nature for all levels and abilities. Close by is The Merrick, at 2,800ft it is the biggest mountain in south Scotland and it is situated at the north side of Loch Trool, at the top you will find a granite boulder, placed to remember Robert the Bruce’s first victory over the English for Scottish independence in 1307.

Glentrool mountain bike trail centre has a reputation for being one of the most scenic of the 7Stanes centres and it is most prevalent in The Big Country Route. 57Km of varying terrain and beautiful views of the Galloway Hills and Loch Trool, the trail continues to Borgan and connects Newton Stewart to Talnotry Hill along the River Cree. Other features of this route are Grey Mare’s Tail Burn, The Quorum (carved stone heads), the Black Loch, Poultrybuie hill and Loch Dee.

The trails at Glentrool are ideal for families and leisurely days out offering two green grade trails, Palgowan and The Glen and one blue grade trail, The Green Torr which is described as ‘Superb’ by many due to its moderate ascent reaching 218m with a couple of pulls, fantastic views and a scenic  descent back to Glentrool visitor centre.

Our transfer packages for riders, bikes and bags will vary depending upon whether you’re collected from your home, multiple collection points, transport hubs or the amount of people travelling in your group.

Firstly, if you need to be transported to the start of the cycle route you’re about to embark, you need to establish where you would like to be collected with your bike & baggage. Also, will this be one point for all or does each of your group require separate collections from different points?

Next, depending on the length of your cycle route and the number of days you’re cycling will dictate how many stop-overs you require. Find this out and we will collect your baggage and take it ahead of your arrival to your chosen accommodation, then collect it the following day and do the same for the duration of your cycle route. At the end of the ride, we will collect you and your group with bags and take you back to your pre-arranged drop-off point, again this may be one point for the whole group or individual drop-off’s.
