Introducing Orienteering - New Course for Teachers

SOA Info/News info

We are proud to announce a new course for teachers, outdoor centre instructors, youth leaders and anyone interested in introducing orienteering to young people.  We’ve taken the best bits of the “Teaching Orienteering” course that we’ve been delivering for several years, made them even better, and made them more relevant to Scotland.  The result is a superb day of enjoyable, active learning experience, and a set of resources that you can use immediately for a series of progressive sessions.  No prior knowledge is required.

Orienteers on The Adventure Show

Great coverage of the Original Mountain Marathon on The Adventure Show with very positive mentions of "Scottish Orienteers" Jess Tullie and Kersten Leslie (reported elsewhere as Team Scotland Orienteering). Watch it on the BBC iPlayer. Great publicity for this sport to try and attract the adventure racers out there.

Orienteering access - guidance

SOA Info/News info

The Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) recommends that as a matter of good practice land managers are contacted by organisers of orienteering activities where practicable. Access to Scotland’s outdoors takes place under Scottish access rights, which apply to most land and inland water. These rights must be exercised responsibly, and land managers have to manage their land responsibly with regard to access.
