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.

Run for INVOC in the Compass Sport Cup!

The Compass Sport Cup and the Compass Sport Trophy are the premier inter-club competitions in Britain.

We are a 'large' club, so INVOC is eligible for the Compass Sport Cup (the Trophy is for 'small' clubs) and we're registered to take part in the first qualifying round - at Dumyat, near Stirling, on Sunday 13th March 2016.

We're keen that INVOC sends a strong contingent; so we call on you to polish up your compass, put on your INVOC top and run for the club at Dumyat! It promises to be a great event, in a new map area, with lots of friendly competition.

All you need to do now (before 4 March!) is to enter the course of your choice, on oentries

If you'd like to know more about which course to enter, have a look at the table in the Compass Sport Cup rules.

Note that start times will be allocated, by club and by individual, in due course.

If you've any questions about the Compass Sport Cup, or if you'd just like some more information, then please don't hesitate to contact the club captain, Iain Hope, at csc2016 'at'

In memoriam: Pauline Inghammar

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Pauline, a member of our Club for over 20 years at Raigmore Hospital on the 21st January.   Pauline attended Highland 87 with her husband Ake and was so taken with the area that over the next few years they relocated to near Beauly and became active members of our club planning and organising events. About 9 months ago Pauline was diagnosed with cancer.   She fought it bravely trying everything available to find a cure.     She managed to attend Highland 15 on 2 days to watch her daughter Karin and her granddaughter Freya compete and she even managed a Light Green course on her own at Affric North. She was a professional singer and had appeared in many shows alongside well known performers.   With Ake she had completed the Munros and they were working their way through the Corbetts and Grahams. She was also a keen Scottish Country dancer.
