Lochfoot, Beezwing, New Abbey

Direction: Out Terregles Rd, Return New Abbey Rd

Distance: 21 miles.

This is a great route. It's low on traffic until you reach the New Abbey Rd. It has many hills throughout and the descents appear just when you need them to. Between the 'Old Military Rd' not long before you join the 'Dalbeattie Rd' there is a descent you can gain incredible speed on. Also on the 'Whinny Hill' descent you can fly. Beware of ignorant motorists on the main road A710. Commonly they will overtake much too closely, and sometimes dangerously on the Whinny Hill.

Rating 8/10
