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.

Red/ purple route

Nice easy family route. Purple all forest road. Red a mixture of forest road and single track. Not too difficult.

It's a stern looking old Scottish castle on the moorlands and has a brooding menacing feel about it. Best seen in low grey clouds and light rain rather than blazing sun shine if you want the best effect!

This is the perfect trail for someone stepping up from Blue routes.Roughly 50% single track with some nice flowing trails.Some varied sections with some decent climbs thrown in.A bit confused finding the actual start to the trails but that was maybe just me.Worth a visit but if your after the thrills of some of the other 7 stanes,Ae,Glentress etc,it's maybe...

Long time since I rode around Newcastleton Red route and since my last visit the start has been moved in to the town starting in the village square. This has extended the route to over 24km but still an easy ride in comparison to other trails. New section has good single track especially on the descent, however he downhill section... More

Just travelled 20 miles to walk at newcastleton and found the walks and visitor centre have disappeared !! The remaining car park offers 2 to 3 miles walks, all the 7to 9 milers have gone WHY ?!

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
