I am approaching 66, as a teenager I biked all over Yorkshire, but have only recently rediscovered the pleasures of cycling (now that I have an E-Bike). It is perfect cycling country around here, its beautiful, the roads are very quiet, and while there are a few hills its certainly not mountainous. Love it!
Round Trip over a few light to moderate hills down to the old Port of St Mary (great stop for a picnic) then back along coast with fine views.
Round trip to Castle Douglas along the "Old Military Road. No Traffic and fine views over the Dee valley and Carlinwark Loch. picnic by the Loch and feed the swans
Round Trip crossing the River Dee 3 times, reed beds at Cumston Bridge are haven for wildlife, stunning views and practically deserted roads
Although this includes about a mile on the A75 trunk road the rest goes through sublime area of (designated) area of outstanding natural beauty. Castles and secret coves. Picnic anywhere!
Round Trip taking in beautiful villages and open moorland, Galloway forest and National Scenic area, tiny secret coves and coastal road. A few moderate hills over the moors then back along coast with fine views.
Round trip via Threave Gardens at Castle Douglas to Scotlands only ROUND TOWER House (you can climbe to the very top. Then back and along the coast road through Auchencairn. Stop to check out Dundrennan Abbey, a 12th-century Cistercian monastery.

"Fludha" is located a little less than a mile from the heart of Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright town center can be accessed by a beautiful walk from the bottom of our drive and along the river bank. Kirkcudbright itself is on the very popular west coast scenic route and the South West Scotland 300 cycling route. Kirkcudbright is surrounded by a specially designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty", and is also located on the edge of the largest Dark Sky Park in the country.
