Orienteering is an outdoor activity that is suitable for people of all ages. As a group or a family or solo, it is a great way of exploring the Scottish countryside. Our EventsNews, Membership, Clubs and What is Orienteering? pages provide you with everything you need to know. Contact us with any queries.

Sport events limited to 200 participants

One change to our Event Guidelines following the First Minister’s announcement about new restrictions coming into effect across Scotland is that events will be subject to a limit of 200 participants effective as of today. Please note that 200 is inclusive of organisers, officials and volunteers at the event.

Total numbers taking part in training, competition or events, should not exceed 200 people in any one day, including organisers, officials and participants. Once an individual has completed their activity, they should immediately vacate the ‘field of play’ and are then subject to normal household rules.

Scottish Orienteering relies on the skills of the volunteer members to plan the courses we all enjoy participating in. More planners = healthy options for clubs. Join the movement.
