DESTINATION

OUR BASE

DUNSKEY ESTATE
DUMFRIES

Bask in the beautiful surrounds of this stunning Edwardian castle, just a short walk from your private beach nestled underneath miles of rugged coastline, stretching from Portpatrick to the Killantrigan lighthouse. 

A picturesque home fit for a weekend venturing deep into the heartland of Dumfriesshire, designed thoughtfully by the Orr Ewing family to create a feeling of both togetherness and escapism. Be that while sharing dinner around its beautiful banquet table, enjoying drinks around the the fire pit, or exploring the grounds with its maze and enchanting woodlands.

Unwind at the magical estate by the sea. Where world-class heritage meets modern splendour, surrounded by natural beauty and endless possibilities.

RIDING

A COASTAL ESCAPE

Our routes for the weekend straddle both the coastal roads and wooded lanes of Dumfrieshire. We cyclists are not all climbers, but we all love climbing. Your efforts will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the region, tall tree-lined winding roads, lochs, mountains and the great company of Sir Chris Hoy to share the vistas with.

Dumfries & Galloway is undoubtedly one of the hidden gems of Scotland. Surrounded by a rich bounty of world-class fish and shellfish from its coast, unbeatable game in the foothills, and artisan producers across the region, our team are looking forward to taking you on a culinary journey on the bike and at the dinner table.
