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.

 

2015 was an exciting time for orienteering in the Highlands, with the World Championships and 6 Day Event in the summer, and 2016 is sure to serve up lots more great events, challenge and fun. If you are not yet a member join us now to get involved, and enjoy reduced entry rates to all our events plus loads of other benefits. Membership costs just £17 for adults, £4 for juniors.
