Purple Thistle 2012, Arisaig

The Purple Thistle weekend returned on the 18/19 August, and once more back to the West coast of Scotland where it all began. If you don’t know Arisaig, it offers top quality terrain and a fantastic setting for Barebones orienteering. Profits from the event will be going to support the Scottish Elite Development Squad.
Results, now including RouteGadget and WinSplits available here.

For those of you who do not know of the barebones concept, it is all about taking the fuss out of event organisation as much as possible while still providing an event of the highest quality, with a great atmosphere and enjoyment for all - including the organisers! So all that is left for you is the things that matter for a quality orienteering experience (maps, courses, controls and electronic punching) and a bunch of likeminded people out to enjoy a weekend away from it all in a beautiful part of the country.
