Dalbeattie to Castle Douglas

Hot on the heels of my weeks holiday on the Isle of Harris I then took a week-long break based in the lovely rural town of Dalbeattie In Dumfriesshire.  Dalbeattie is well known for having some fantastic mountain bike trails - many accessible from the town itself - but I chose to take my road bike and had some fabulous rides in some gorgeous sunny weather.  I'm still suffering from random freezes of my GoPro Hero 9 camera - going to invest in a new memory card soon - so the starts and finishes of the rides are not always as I planned them!

This ride starts in the town of Dalbeattie itself before heading north along the B class road to Haugh of Urr. From there it takes the OIld Military Road that runs alongside the main A75 Dumfries to Stranraer trunkroad into Castle Douglas. The ride should have continued a few more kilometres down to the gorgeous art town of Kirkcudbright but instead stops short just outside Castle Douglas outside the entrance to Threave Estate. Enjoy.  

The two follow on videos to complete this ride are here and here.
