Sanquhar and take a ride in the lowther hills and drumlanrig.
Arm yourself with OS78 and navigate your way down to Dumfries for a train home 😆
i dont think any of the 7stanes is near a train station which is leaving me out of ideas
Mabie is only a 5mile easy ride from the station.
Ae is about 9miles and again a reasonably easy ride out.
Enough people from D&G on here to meeet up with and give you a lift out, maybe even over to Kirry or Dalbeattie 💡 😆
Train to Dumfries and ride over to Dalbeattie and stay here;

forgot to say im looking for somewhere that i wont need to use a map
ticket is valid until 30th of april
That would rule out a lot of the suggestions on that list. Some of them might have fairly obvious trails (so you can follow a guidebook etc) BUT most of them would be reckless to attempt in later winter / spring without a map and compass and the knowledge to use it.
Golspie is signposted but is a very long train journey from most places.Posted 5 years ago
You could ride most of the WHW without stopping to check map too often – but I’d want one as a backup.epicycloSubscriber
You can take a train to just about any destination in the highlands (the wester and norther, the better) and have a huge range of interesting tracks.
Scotland has an open access policy, so you can head along any interesting track without any real restrictions.
Basically observe good manners, ie don’t go close to someone’s house, keep out of crops, avoid lambing fields, and don’t shoot back at the toffs in tame deer and fat overfed dumb bird slaughtering season.Posted 5 years ago
