UPDATE 10th December
Thanks for the comments, and also emails that have come to me. There are a few things to note:
1. duplicates etc in the tables: I'll re-post corrected tables shortly once all the corrections have been made (nearly all result from using Scottish Champs as a SOL this year, which hopefully will not happen again for a while!).
2. Scoring rules: this year is even more complex than usual. We could do the scoring in lots of ways, but none is perfect (simplest would be to use BOF ranking points, but this doesn't work for younger juniors). Alternatives, either for the scoring system or course combinations, can always be considered by SOA, but there are always things for and against each system.
3. Contact email: Trevor Hoey
4. Archive of old SOL results - we are working on this, and have sourced some quite ancient league tables to add to the archive.
FINAL league tables for 2016 after SOL 7 are now available.
Scores arranged by COURSE or AGE CLASS are available. For some age classes there are differences in points between the courses and age classes, on account of course/class combinations used for the Scottish Championships being different from the usual SOL, see notes below for more explanations.

The Trophy Presentation for the winners of the 2016 SOL will take place at the Scottish Score Championships on Sunday 27 November at Palacerigg Country Park.
Compass Point Scottish O League
A middle distance race on Saturday and SOL 7 on Sunday, both in the wonderful Culbin Forest. The weekend also incorporated the SOA Junior Inter-Area competition which was won by West. Thanks to Moravian for a great weekend. Results on the Moravian website.
Including JEC Spectator Race 3
SOL 6 was also the venue for the Junior European Cup long distance race, so you were able to spectate before your run (with commentary), and then runners on Blue to Black got to run JEC courses themselves. The forest was looking good, and the map had been extended into some excellent new terrain since the last event there.
Results available here and on the Clyde web site.
Weekend of Orienteering in Lovely Forests
10/11th September. The same mix of events that has proved popular for the last 3 years. Middle Distance in Glen Gynack, Sprint/Urban (SOUL 8) in Kingussie, Ceilidh & Scottish Orienteering League (SOL 5) at Uath Lochans.
Results on the BASOC website, Urban League results
Compass Point Scottish Orienteering League
Invoc were delighted to be returning to the superb terrain of the WOC long courses. In what was possibly the last large scale event to be held in this stunning area due to planned felling. Results
BASOC had an event at Dulnain Wood on the Saturday, to make a weekend of it.
