The birthplace of the bicycle, beautiful scenery and quiet country roads conspire to make this part of Dumfries & Galloway one of the best places in the UK to enjoy road cycling.

For many people exploring the countryside by bicycle is by far the best way to travel, fast enough to take in miles and miles of travelling, slow enough to enjoy the ride. The pedal bicycle was invented around 15 miles from Woodland House Hotel when blacksmith Kirkpatrick McMillan added pedals to a velocipede to create an entirely new form of transport.

If you decide to do some road cycling during your stay at Woodland House Hotel we’re ideally placed for you to explore the KM Trail which takes you past McMillan’s smiddy and onto the National Museum of Cycling at Drumlanrig Castle – a fascinating journey into the origins of cycling.
