Regular Orienteering Map Programme (ROMP)
2017-2018 ROMP is go! Controls are out and ready. Achlean, used for the Scottish Score Championships in 2014, is this year's excellent ROMP area. Parking is at NN842995 near Tolvah on the north of the area.
Achlean is superb! 22 controls out with two start/finish options (control 122 doubles up as S2/F2). Access is via the road signposted Glen Feshie. Follow the minor road past Uath Lochans and just after the tarmac ends cross a wooden bridge and drive up into the forest (ignore first turning on the left).
Thanks to funding from the SOA there are new lightweight stakes, control flags, pin punches and control numbers.
Options include using some or all controls as a score event or other training/coaching options. A sheet with Short, Medium and Long Courses has also been produced.
The map is available as a free pdf to SOA members or supplied on waterproof paper to all at £3.50 per copy to include postage. pdfs are charged at £2 per map to non-SOA members. Many thanks to Thomas MacDonnel, Glenfeshie Factor, for his help and agreement on access.
Please contact if you would like to get in some winter training on this first class area.
