Route information
Taking place in the complex streets of Lossiemouth expect you orienteering skills to be put to the test in this challenging event. There will be a number of courses on offer promising some great views. If you are under 16 please enter either course 6 or course 7 which use quiet residential footpaths or on paths alongside minor roads.
The event is entirely urban, with Courses 1–5 crossing a main road to visit the complex housing estate to the south of the High School. This has many alley ways between blocks of housing with communal parking areas. Please take extra care as some of the alley ways are very mossy. Note the 5m contour interval.
The courses are all in urban terrain. There is no significant climb – but it isn’t flat either! Views guaranteed on every course (unless the weather closes in ☹).
Most controls will have the flag and SI unit grippled together and suspended from an obliging lamp post, tree or fence. There are a few SI units on stakes grippled to an object. Note that a few 'open area' control descriptions have the control on a lamp post on or adjacent to the open area.

  • Urban terrain courses
