Regular Orienteering Map Programme

ROMP logo

Controls now out in Uath Lochan and in two parts of Inshriach.  Information sheets including travel directions and descriptions of suggested training activities can be downloaded.  Over the festive period, maps can be collected from Insh.

Uath Lochan gives you everything from HUGE crags to subtle contours;  we've planned a short intricate exercise in the sheltered forest, and suggested a nice path run for added entertainment.  Recent heavy snowfall melted partially then re-froze, leaving very wet conditions in places, and some lumpy ice on paths at time of writing.  There are also quite a few trees down across paths.  Watch this space for updates on conditions.

Inshriach is renowned for its detailed contours - are you up to the challenge?  Controls are out in the best bit (moved from their earlier sites), near the gliding field, and with 2 short loops near the Feshie Bridge car park for a warm-up.    More detail is on the information sheet which is available for download (see below).  These controls will be in place until the end of February.

Map packs cost £3.50 each per area (for SOA members) and are normally available from Glenmore Lodge reception, or by post (add 75p for one, £1 for two, £1.50 for 3-5).  

Over the holiday period you may collect maps from Insh, but do please e-mail at least 12 hours ahead so appropriate arrangements can be made.
