INVOC and MOR would like to welcome you to Achagour and Dulsie for the
Individual Event of the Scottish Orienteering Championships on Saturday 26 May.

The Strath of Findhorn has provided excellent orienteering for WOC and the Scottish 6 Days championships at Darnaway, Coulmony and Belivat (Day 6 of Moray 2013).

Achagour may be familiar to you from the first day of Highland 2015, with its subtle contour detail and open heather moor, combined with a patchwork of marshes and woodlands. The map has been professionally extended to the south, adding more complex topography in woodlands.

 

Location

Achagour Trout Fisheries, Achagour Farm, Ardclach by Nairn IV12 5UY
