Ae Forest

Forests & Woodlands

    The shortest place name in the UK, but Ae offers a wide variety of walks, 7stanes mountain biking trails, a café and bike shop. There's also a collection of old farm machinery!

    The forest is also one of the largest in Britain, at over 10,000 hectares.

    Road Directions

    Follow the A701 from Dumfries or Moffat. Turn just south of Parkgate, at the signpost for Forest of Ae, and follow this road for two miles. At the crossroads in Ae Village, turn right and follow signs for the cycle car park.

    Alternately, keep straight on for another half a mile and take the signposted turning for 'Ae Valley car park' where all the forest walks start.
