Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend 2018

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!*

In Glenmore, there are two opportunities to try orienteering:

  • *CANCELLED* Beginners' introductory sessions on Saturday 12th May between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, where qualified coaches will show you the basics in an informal setting. If possible please book before lunchtime on Friday 11th May using this link but don’t worry if you miss this deadline as there will be some spare maps available. £1.50 per person; payment on arrival.
  • *SUNDAY ONLY* Collect a map from Glenmore Visitor Centre or Glenmore Lodge and go orienteering in your own time! The forests and views around Glenmore are beautiful and this guarantees you see some hidden bits! £2.50 per map.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
