Non-local events in Scotland

An explanation of how events are graded:

  • Major - Major national championships eg Scottish Champs, British Champs etc. (attendances often 1,000+)
  • National - Large regional events such as Scottish O League Events (attendances often 300/400+)
  • Regional - Medium sized events with a wide selection of courses - tend to attract reasonable numbers of people from other clubs (attendances 100-250)
  • Local - Local events with fewer courses and more informal organisation. Usually aimed at members of the host club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs. Usually ideal for newcomers to try the sport.
  • Activity - Non competitive events used for training and coaching. Aimed at members of the host club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs. Often ideal for newcomers to try the sport.

Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend 2018

Cairngorms Nature Big Weekend

Scottish Orienteering is pleased to be part of the Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend 11th-13th May. A perfect opportunity to encourage friends and family to try out orienteering - it's fun, informal, and a great way to explore the heart of the Cairngorms National Park!

*Update 10th May: We're very sorry that the Glenmore beginners' orienteering sessions on Saturday have had to be cancelled. Maps will still be available for you to explore in your own time from Sunday until the end of summer. There is also still orienteering at the Linn of Dee near Braemar!*
