Inverness Orienteering Club, or INVOC as we are better known, is the local orienteering club for the Inverness area and much of the rest of highland Scotland. If you are new to orienteering, our New to orienteering? page offers a starting point  to find out a bit more about the sport, and our About INVOC page tells you a little bit about the club.

Our next events:  

Sun July 31st to Saturday August 6th: Scottish 6 Day.  It is great to see that we already have around 60 club members entered in the Scottish 6 Days festival in and around Aboyne, Ballater and Braemar.  Online entries are now closed, but there is entry on the day.   There are plenty of courses for the less experienced with the same colour codes as we use for our local events and Entry on the Day is possible.  Even if you only come for one day, it is worth a visit to experience a big event that is open to all.  Our day is Monday July 31st and any help manning the arena and starts would be welcome.  Email Guy Seaman via Beryl at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Results - Abriachan. Sun June 11th:  . 

A great turnout at Abriachan today with 119 runners at a little local event.  Great courses planned by Joy and Ewan Cameron on our first visit  since it got trashed in the winter storms of 2 years ago.  It's a tough area and the mins per km reflected that.  Congratulations to all those who want to the top and back (twice)!!! Thanks to Abriachan Forest Trust for letting us use their facilities. And big thank you to Alison Matheson first time organiser and Jim Finlayson SI guru.

31 May 2017: Ord Hill - Evening Event and Schools League 3 (the big finale)

Glorious weather made for a great day.  Steep and thick on the vegetation front is Ord Hill.  Thanks to the event team:  Susan Blackwood (series coordinator), Jenny Hall (organiser) and Eric Todd and David Hall (planner) and Tom Todd (planners' mentor) plus all the helpers on the day.

The 2017 schools league winners are Fortrose Academy, Bun-sgoil Ghaidhlig Inbhir Nis & Stratherrick Primary School! Congratulations to them and to all the children taking part, all the volunteers that made the events happen and all the teachers and parent volunteers that run the school clubs. Are you exhausted, but looking forward to next year?  We are....
