If you're into mountain biking then you've come to the right place! Dumfries and Galloway is home to world renowned mountain bike trails and the 7 stanes provides trails to suit all abilities. Galloway Activity Centre is in a central location with easy access to popular 7 stanes venues so with on site bike storage, a bike rack and hose and an eclectic mix of accommodation options there's no better base for you mountain bike holiday!

Bike hire is available from the centre and we have a range of popular mountain bike options including instructor led night rides and ferry's across the loch to wonderful mountain bike trails in the Galloway Forest Park.

Things to do dark sky park

The 75,000 hectare Galloway Forrest Park is the first area in the U.K. to be awarded Dark Sky status. The extremely low levels of light pollution make ideal conditions for night gazers and star spotters.

Nestled on the edge of the Dark Sky Park the Accommodation at Galloway Activity Centre is the perfect base for anyone keen to enjoy the night sky at it's best. We've had a number of astronomical societies book into our bunkhouse during the winter months to set up their equipment and anyone staying in our eco bothies will be able to marvel at the night skies from their hot tubs!

things to do red kites

A trip to Loch Ken wouldn't be complete without a Red Kite flying overhead and we'd urge anyone staying with us to explore as much of the Red Kite trail as they have time for.

The Red Kites were successfully re-introduced to Loch Ken and not a day goes by when you don't see them soaring above the centre. The Galloway Kite Trail runs anti-clockwise around the Loch with various points of interest along the way. One of the popular spots to visit it the Hidden Cages - the site of the original re-introduction site and you can travel there with bikes hired from the centre.

Another option not to be missed is to go and watch the Kite's at the feeding station. At around 2pm every day sometimes 100 birds flock down to the feeding station and it's an awesome sight.

Head down to reception on your arrival and let us help you plan the best way to encorporate the Red Kite trail into your stay.
