How to find us
To find us, from Dumfries take the A710 Solway Coast Road. About 3 miles from Dumfries you will pass through Islesteps and 1.65 miles further down the road you will see the entrance to Mabie Forest on the right. (If you get to New Abbey you have missed the turning.) Turn into the forest and follow the road up to the white Forest Enterprise building, ignore all signs to car park etc. Drive behind the building onto the forest track and Marthrown is exactly one mile up into the forest. Please observe the 15mph speed limit on the forest track. Please don't try to use Satnav as you will end up at a locked gate!
