    Over the last 2 years we have enjoyed showing visitors around our bit of Scotland and creating amazing cycling holiday experiences. We love doing the unusual, the things other companies don’t do – we have backgrounds in art, photography, farming and ecology with a bit of bushcraft as well.

    • 2 Days extra day available
    • Cyclist levelFrom beginner
    • Scotland

    For years this area has been known as a mountain biking destination. But with hundreds of square miles of forest, coastal paths and farm tracks this is now a world class destination for gravel and adventure cycling. Just a couple of hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh and the first bit of Scotland you arrive at if you come from England.

    Rides can be guided, bring your own bike (anything you are happy to ride on a rough farm track), or rent one of ours. We have a range of routes to suit your fitness levels and the type of rides you are going to enjoy.

    There may be foraging, coffee making or photography tips and there will always be a lot of helpful advice and stories. 

    We partner with the best accommodation in the area, just pick your comfort level from hotel to bunkhouse. A long weekend or anything up to a week – all of which can start any day of the year. 

    The price is based on staying at the wonderful Selkirk Arms Hotel in Kirkcudbright.  Other options are available –  talk to us.


    Come for a long weekend or anything up to a week, and remember – rides start any day of the year.
