How To Get To Ae

Ae forest lies around 14km north of Dumfries, just off the A701 Dumfries – Moffat road. The trail head is just past Ae village, roughly 4.5km from the A701 turn off.

Using SatNav or GPS?

Use postcode DG1 1QB reach Ae forest, then follow signs for the trail head.

The OS Grid Reference for Mabie trail head is: NX982901

From Stranraer & Dumfries to Ae Village

Take the A75 east to Dumfries, then join the A701 towards Moffat and the A74(M). After about 10km, look for signs to Ae village.

From Glasgow to Ae Village

Follow the M74 south to junction 15 (Beattock) and join the A701 towards Dumfries. After 19km look for the second turn off for Ae village on the right.

From Edinburgh to Ae Village

Follow the A702 south through Biggar to join the M74 at junction 13 (Abington) and then continue on to junction 15 (Beattock) and turn off onto the A701 towards Dumfries. After 19km look for the second turn off for Ae village on the right.

From Carlisle to Ae Village

Follow the A74 north. There are options at Gretna to take the A75 to Dumfries and then on to the A701, however, continuing north to junction 16 (Annandale Water services) of the A74(M) then heading via Johnstonebridge and minor roads to join the A701 at St Ann’s is slightly shorter. At St Ann’s, turn left onto the A701 towards Dumfries and continue for 9.5km to the second turn off for Ae village.

From Ae Village to Trail head

Take the left turn off the A701 to the village. Go through the village (about 4 km from the turn off) and turn right into the Forestry Commission area. The 7stanes car park is signposted. Go past the Forestry buildings and turn left onto the minor road. The car park is 500m further along.


  1. Hi,do we enter through the BC website or is there another system in place??

    • Hi Pip,

      Entry is via the BC website only. You’ll find a link from each of the event/round pages on our website linking through to the corresponding entry page on BC website.

  2. Are the stages open to ride on the Friday this season?

    • Hi Andy,

      Yes the stages will be marked out. Please bear in mind thought that the event does not begin until Saturday morning so there is no medical or marshal cover and you should ride accordingly.

  3. coed y brenin………. or Ae……… ???

    • Hi Peter,


      The finish area at CYB was to small to accommodate us, so the venues is now Ae Forest.

  4. Hi,Can you still enter if you are 14?

    • Hi Tirion,

      Yes. You need to be at least 14 to enter, you’ll be in the under 18 category.

      • ok,Thanks Matthew.

  5. Will i need a national ranking an licence to compete at these events

    • Hi Simon,

      No. There is currently no national ranking system in place for enduro, although this will develop in the next couple of years. So at present you just need to be quick with your mouse finger as entries will go fast when they become available of February 1st.

  6. sorry, just seen on the other page early 2014.

  7. when will the entries open for coed y brenin, dont want to miss out! many thanks dave.

    • Hi David,

      Entry will go live February 1st 2014.
