Our next event

Saturday & Sunday July 18th & 19th: Inverness Gala Come and Try It at Bught Park, Inverness. As part of the Inverness Highland Games & Gala we'll be hosting a Come & Try It orienteering event. If you've never tried it before, this is your chance! Just find our stall inside the Gala arena and have a go. It'll take you about 10 minutes and cost just £1.50 a go. We'll be there Saturday - Sunday, 11:00 - 16:00. For experienced orienteers it's a chance to have a first run on the brand new Bught Park map & semi-permanent orienteering course.


A scenic semi permanent control beside the Ness ready for the Inverness Gala. The semi-permanent courses will be open to the public after the end of the World Championships.
