Orienteering Techniques by Gareth Bryan-Jones

This edition was fully updated in 2006, and further improved in 2012 and re-printed in 2015.  It is full of excellent colour diagram and maps – a must for orienteers of all standards from beginner to elite. Many of us refer to it time after time, year after year…

Copies are available from:
The National Orienteering Centre, Glenmore Lodge, Aviemore, Inverness-shire PH22 1QZ £6.00 plus £1.25 post & packing, cheques payable to ‘Scottish Orienteering Association’.

It is also available from various volunteer “sales reps” at local events and from Compass Point.
