You will then head off into the picturesque Moffat Dale, passing the large waterfall of Grey Mare’s Tail before climbing over a pass descending down to St Mary’s Loch. The road skirts around the edge of the picturesque loch before climbing up into Craik Forest and on through Eskdalemuir Forest. You will pass the Tibetan monastery at Sayme Ling before returning through Castle O’er Forest back to Lockerbie. There are some fabulous sections of road riding offering superb views.
