Best places to stay in 7 stanes?
Kailzie bunkhouse near Glentress is good and £20 a night. Sadly the bunkhouse near Dalbeatie has closed but there’s still the overpriced campsite at Kippford. At least the local pub is good. If you want really cheap then just pitch a tent in a remote spot and wash/poo at the trail centres or a pub.Posted 4 years agoandrewhMember
I stayed in one of those wooden huts at GT and was pleasently surprised by it. Should be able to fit you all in there easy enough.Posted 4 years ago
Wanlockhead youth hostel is very nice, I prefer the smaller ones, and not too far from Mabie and Dalbeattie, but even closer to Drumlanrig, which is not one of the 7 but well worth a visit if you are in the area.TreksterSubscriber

are you referring to Gorsebank near Dalbeattie?
For a weeks trip divide your time between staying somewhere near/in Peebles/Inners and near Dumfries.Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
Had a family holiday here in the summer, 10 mins from kirroughtree so a bit of a mission from the rest but a lovely little placePosted 4 years agoDogsbySubscriber
I have a cottage that is between Marie and Dalbeattie that sleeps six if you are interested. You can cycle to both in 30 mins along quiet roads or drive in 10 or so minutes. You can get to Ae, Kirroughtree, Glen Trool or Drumlanrig all in less than an hour. I will pm you my address if you are interested or look at my profile or http://www.burnbankcottage.co.uk I have had a good few STWers and it is set up for MTBs.

A group of us rode the 7 stanes last year and stayed at the galloway activity centre http://www.lochken.co.uk/accommodation/mongolian-yurt which was our base for raiding mabie, dalbeattie, Ae and kirroghtree. We They have yurts and teepee’s which was affordable and pretty cool. I also recommend the campsite at glentress and have stayed kailzie guesthouse too however take a sleeping mat as the matresses are very lumpy but they do a good cooked breakfastPosted 4 years ago
