Glenkiln

Castle Douglas

 

 

 

Big country riding, rolling hills, views to die for and mile upon mile of technical singletrack – it's all here in the south of Scotland. Some of the world's best biking, guaranteed, with great local accommodation, food and fine local ales make visiting the 7stanes a must. Come and spend a while in Scotland's biking heaven! Dumfries & Galloway's famous open studio arts event. Whether you're looking for that special gift, are curious to watch an artist at work, even have a go yourself, or simply fancy a great day out Spring Fling is for you. Not only will you discover the region’s arts and crafts, you’ll also enjoy stunning locations across the breadth of the beautiful region. A walk with a difference around a 'sculpture park' set in a quiet, attractive glen. Pieces by Rodin, Epstein and Henry Moore, collected by the local landowner Sir William Keswick and placed in a completely natural environment, provide interesting stimuli to this gentle walk. Castle Douglas - Dumfries & Galloway's food town - for wonderful delis, gift boutiques, arts and crafts galore, and beautiful Threave gardens and castle. A great day out for all the family.

Drumlanrig Castle

 

Mabie Fam Park

The Seaside

Indoors, we've got a huge soft play area with ball pools, slides, and more. There's also a cafe, selling tea, coffee, juice, cakes and lots more!

Outdoors, there are trampolines, pedal karts, go karts, crazy golf, more play equipment, games... also don't forget to say hi to our farm animals, they'd love to meet you!

Boasting a large woodland adventure playground, surrounded by the 120,000 acre Queensberry Estate, Country Park and grand Victorian Gardens, Drumlanrig Castle was completed in 1691 by William Douglas, 1st Duke of Queensberry, and is one of the first and most important Renaissance buildings in the grand manner in Scotland. Steeped in history, this unique and historic Scottish Castle, filled with treasures, is one of the principal visitor attractions in South Scotland. With its Castle tours, beautiful gardens, wildlife, woodland walks, championship mountain bike trails and cycle routes, our boast of the finest recreation in South Scotland is not a hollow one.
 
Among the many attractions at the Farm Park we have a Dirt Buggy Track, a Grass Sledging Slope, Pedal Go Karts, a Boating Pond, lots of animals and a 5000 square foot Indoor Playbarn.
Picnic areas are scattered throughout the farm park and we have an area set aside for you to enjoy your own barbecue.
Our popular Tearoom serves a range of snacks, drinks and Ice Cream. Due to its popularity the Tearoom was greatly extended in 2005, we have also incresed the size of the patio so that our visitors can enjoy the local scenery.
The Coast of Dumfies and Galloway is hugged by an array of good ol' fashioned bucket n' spade beaches. From the cockle shells and lighthouse of Southerness to the long, shallow, warm water of Cardoness, with the soft sand of Port Logan and Sandyhills thrown in.
