FINDING GLENTRESS FOREST One and a half miles east of the small town of Peebles on the A72 some 30 miles South of Edinburgh in The Scottish Borders. The entrance to the Forest is clearly marked and if you look out for the Glentress Hotel then you are very close, it lies just at the entrance to the forest. There is ample parking but note closing times, some of the car parks are locked after 6:00pm, but not all.
Forestry Commision Scotland have invested tremendously into the Mountain Biking schemes here at Glentress and throughout the Tweed Valley with the 7 Stanes Projects.
