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.

Very quiet Stane. We had the whole place to ourselfs. Trails where in great condition and running fast. One of the better red trails I have been on. A good sense of achievement after completing the trail. Definitely be returning again.

Perhaps the least ridden of the 7 Stanes? Maybe. Certainly the quietest on our week long trip riding all of them. Tucked away above the village, the car park is free (the only one of the 7 Stanes to be so) but it has all you need: trail maps, a hose for washing the bike and an unmanned but perfectly... More
