Perthshire Progress

SOA Info/News info

Congratulations to Tayside Orienteers for securing funding from the Orienteering Foundation for a Strathearn Schools Development Project, part of the lead into Strathearn 2019, the next Scottish 6 Days.

Orienteering activity in the area is hotting up, so why not make a double bill of the weekend 8th and 9th December in Perthshire?

On the Saturday Masterplan Adventure would like to welcome you to the first ever orienteering event to be held at the world famous Gleneagles. As well as being a renowned hotel and golfing paradise, Gleneagles has plenty more to offer! Just over the road from the hotel and golf courses, the Estate encompasses off-road driving, running trails, horse riding, shooting and archery. We offer you a limited range of colour coded courses, as well as a middle distance for the elites.

On Sunday the Tay Christmas Score Event will be held on St Magdalene Hill - fancy dress optional but recommended.
