Why the Beltie name you may ask. Well, the beautiful area we are in is the home of the famous Belted Galloway breed of cow which is recognised the world over for its outstanding good looks and cool looking jumper.

We are in the Galloway Glen of the Water of Ken and Dee, a stunningly scenic area of South-West  Scotland. The area is recognised as a hidden gem often missed by the tourist tracks to the Highlands and Central Scotland. This is your chance to race in a truly wonderful place.
