Red Bull recognises Dumfries and Galloway as having some of the best gravel biking trails in the whole of Britain, ranking the route from Clatteringshaws to Glentrool in its UK top 10.

This is just one of many of the region’s breathtaking cycle routes which allow you to appreciate our natural countryside and coastline, exploring Galloway off the beaten track.


Over the years the King’s has welcomed cyclists and mountain bikers of all ages and abilities, and proprietor David is on hand to advise on routes in the area for those who want to go their own way.


For those looking for an organised cycling tour, we’ve now teamed up with local outdoor activity specialists Galloway Cycling Holidays to provide a package for visiting bikers, and as always we give you a cosy place to eat, drink and rest after a challenging day’s biking. 

Esther and Warren of Galloway Cycling Holidays will take you for two days’ outdoor bike adventure in the hills and of Dumfries and Galloway, stopping off to appreciate the sights, cook bannocks and coffee on camping stoves, and experience the best gravel biking and cycle routes the region has to offer.


We have a secure, dedicated shed for those bringing their own bikes and can also arrange hire through Galloway Cycles.

Prices are based on two adults sharing and exclude bike hire, which can be arranged through Galloway Cycling.

Routes include: Raider’s Road, Old Edinburgh Road, Glentrool, Netherlinkings
