The Dalbeattie trails are to be found between Dumfries and Castle Douglas at the junction of the A711 and the A710. The trail head is just over a kilometre south of Dalbeattie, at Richorn.
There are no large hills and the open, coastal setting is quite a contrast to the forest trails elsewhere. Most of the trails are on granite rock.
The Ironhash Trail offers entry-level biking mainly on tracks, there is also a red-graded Hardrock Rail while the black graded sections here guarantee maximum thrills.
