Close to the Scotland-England border, Newcastleton has trails for all levels. There is plenty of fun to be had here on routes shorter than at most of the other 7stanes.

Quiet, unobtrusive & friendly. Dont just drive through. Do the river walk and eat in the grapes. Nothing to dislike really except paying more for petrol in this area because its remote. Not fair for residents & travellers alike!

Was a quiet little village. Would not say that it was the prettiest of places but the people that we met whilst we were visiting were friendly and the meal in the Liddaw Hotel was absolutely lovely. The chef, Thomas came out to introduce himself and to let us know what the specials were for the evening. My husband tried... More

Fabulous route with plenty of technical challenges especially on the red route! You could also cycle through to Kielder Water on the forestry tracks.

The ride is good, lots of single track which is a nice surprise and also some wider trails. It has a brilliant finish to the first red loop with some flowing fast descent, sadly not enough for me overall and not really technical. I enjoyed the overall experience eating in Newcastleton and camping in the original car park with great... More

Small place, but very good for families, for "real men" as well when you ride it fast :-) Was a good start before visiting the other "Stanes"

Popped for a cheeky Newcastleton 7Staines ride this evening. The trail was a real unexpected treat, not particularly challenging and technically very strait forward. I rode the trail solo and it did feel very remote. It was short enough to do two laps. It was stunning, with the super strong June sunlight blasting through dark pine forest. To top it... More

Noise from the rally cars spoilt the beautiful scenery. Pretty views but some of the walks were on roads. Lots of great tracks for walks or bikes, good parking provision.
