STAG welcomes you to the 4th CompassPoint Scottish Orienteering League event of 2018 in Errochty Forest on Saturday 6th October.
This cracking forest near Calvine in Highland Perthshire has only been used 4 times in the last 26 years - first mapped for JHI 2002, then remapped for Scottish 2004, STAG's 25th & then 30th Anniversaries in 2007 & 2012 respectively. A vegetation resurvey was made by Stirling Surveys in July 2018.

Orienteering embargos i.e. restricted access apply to certain levels of event. Major events (previously Level A) and National events (previously Level B) have embargos in place by default. The Scottish Orienteering League (SOL) events are classifed as National events and the SOL rules state: "An embargo shall be observed by those wishing to score points in the SOL. The embargo period is one year, or from the date on which the venue is announced if this is less than a year." Two year embargos apply to Major events and should be notified through the BOF embargo pages.
SOA Operations Director, Terry O'Brien, would like to hear from members and clubs on their opinions of the current structure of 'Scottish' fixtures and competitions - all events that are currently prefixed by 'Scottish,' and any new ideas, to by 14th May 2018.
SOL league tables by Course and Age Class now updated after the final race at SOL7. A summary of the results for 2017 will be added to this page in due course (and will appear in the next edition of Score).
Interlopers staged the final SOL of 2017 on the narrow but perfectly formed Drummond Hill on the NE end of Loch Tay. Final positions in the O-League have been decided, with some major changes for those trying to hold onto a top 10 finish in their age class - some orienteers who had only completed in three previous events or had a poor run had the opportunity to catapult up the results board. The SOL followed on from Interlopers Urban League event in Livingston, part of their INTrepid weekend. The event was enhanced with the Junior Inter Area Competition taking place at the same time.
bto SOUL10 & SOL7 - 28 & 29 October
Interlopers are hosting the penultimate race in the Urban League in Livingston and the final Scottish League on Drummond Hill above Loch Tay.
