The 2017-2018 Agreement does not advise a blanket ban on orienteering in capercaillie woods.  Amendments include a change from  "no orienteering" to "restrictions to orienteering". Maps detailing active leks and brood habitats for Deeside/Aberdeenshire, Moray, Easter Ross, Perthshire and Strathspey are held by theEvents Manager.  SOA clubs should contact the Events Manager in the first instance for advice on the list of areas affected.
