Regular Orienteering Map Programme

ROMP logo

Controls now out in Uath Lochan;  those put out in Inshriach in October are still there and maps are available for both areas.  Weather permitting, controls will be out in 2 more areas very soon.  Information sheets including travel directions and descriptions of suggested training activities can be downloaded.

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.  Watch this space for updates on conditions.

Inshriach is renowned for its detailed contours - are you up to the challenge?  Controls are now out in the best bit, near the gliding field.  The suggested course is intended to give several long legs through detailed squiggles.  More detail is on the information sheet which is available for download (see below).  These controls are now likely to remain out until mid January.

Weather permitting, more controls will be put out in Inshriach North, and in Achlean.

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).  You can also arrange to collect maps from Insh, which involves a very short diversion off the A9 as you head north through Strathspey.  Over the holiday period this may well be your best option, but do please e-mail at least 12 hours ahead so appropriate arrangements can be made.
