Shepherd's huts in Mabie with wildlife watching guide

Overview

Just 20 minutes south of Dumfries, Mabie Forest is one of the area’s most popular destinations for walkers and mountain bikers. The forest is home to a 7stanes mountain biking centre, which has a variety of trails for everyone, from beginners to expert riders who can tackle an extreme downhill section. There are also several walking trails that take visitors through the woods and over hills to viewpoints that take in the surrounding landscapes. Wildlife lovers also flock to Mabie Forest to spot red squirrels, badgers, roe deer and foxes, as well as ospreys and 20 species of butterfly.

When to go

While Mabie Forest is a great destination all year-round, summer offers the best weather conditions and long daylight hours. Summer especially appeals to wildlife lovers who can spot ospreys fishing on Lochaber Loch. The autumn is also an attractive time to visit for the sight of the forest ablaze in rich reds and oranges. If tackling the trails in winter, be sure to take care and dress in warm, weatherproof gear.

Know before you go

  • Families travelling with children will find an adventure playground nestled in the trees next to the car park.
  • The closest railway station is in Dumfries, from where regular buses travel to Sandyhills and stop close to the forest entrance.
  • Public toilets, accessible facilities, picnic tables, and barbecues are available near the main car park.
