Mabie Forest, just on the outskirts of Dumfries nestled in Southern Scotland is home to a vast choice of walks and trails for all ages and abilities, world class 7 Stanes mountain biking trails, adventure playground, wildlife and butterfly reserve.
With stunning views across the picturesque Solway coast and beyond at almost every turn, and plenty of wildlife watching opportunities throughout the forest there really is something for everyone at Mabie.
At the main trailhead car park (charges apply – although hotel guests can park at the hotel for free) there are toilets and picnic benches.
Having stayed here numerous times, I know the welcome will always be warm. The food is excellent and the staff are always friendly. The rooms are always clean and well presented whilst being reasonably priced. The hotel is full of character and ideally situated to explore this beautiful part of south west Scotland.
