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.


Orienteering Edinburgh

Following a successful series of Orienteering Edinburgh events in the early Summer, we decided to run a series of lunchtime events in the winter to maximise daylight. For this 4 week series each event starts at Festival Square in central Edinburgh, every Thursday lunchtime for 4 weeks. Each week there are new courses to try.

Team Scotland Sponsors – Thank You!

Scottish Orienteering, and all the members of the Senior Home International and Veteran Home International teams would like to say a big thank you to Ben Hartmann, and Janice Nisbet (through Fergusson Law) for sponsoring the team kit for the 2023 events. Their contributions meant that all members of both teams were provided with Scotland orienteering tops free of charge. The intention is that future team members will also get given a shirt as recognition for representing Scotland.

If you or your organisation is interested in sponsoring the Scottish team in future (kit or activities) then please get in touch.
