The Dalbeattie 7stanes mountain biking center provides highly skilled riders with excellent technical single-track trails optimized for cross-country riding. Less challenging options exist for all ability levels, such as a beginner skills loop near the parking area - ideal for warming up or introductory rides.

However, Dalbeattie has gained most renown for "The Slab,  a 15-meter near-vertical rock face cut from solid granite. From the top, the slab appears almost vertical for descent.
