From the motorway A74(M) take the A701 from the North or A75 from the South; continue on the A75 to Castle Douglas. On towards Creetown and continue for approx 4 mile, look for sign post for Kirroughtrie Visitors Centre and continue into centre, race signs will be posted.This venue is within Kirroughtrie Visitors Centre. The Forest Enterprise were delighted with the success of previous years events, where it proved very popular with many of the local people visiting to see what a dog rally is really about.The organisers would ask everyone, especially those who are new to the sport, to read and understand the rally rules. They are there for everyone’s benefit and must be adhered to. To ensure we are able to use this venue again, please be vigilant and help avoid any conflicts which would be viewed unfavourably with the hosts.
The start and finish areas will be clearly marked. Competitors parking areas will be sign posted. Please be considerate and allow the allocated parking for the larger teams to remain for them, which is closer to the start / finish line.
The trails consist of mostly soft dirt, grass trails – a few areas are slightly stony. Dog boots should be on hand in case conditions change due to weather, however, it is likely that these will not be needed. The trail has many gentle turns; there are no steep hills, (well except for one.!) and some pleasant scenery
