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.

Evanton Local event on 31st October

Details     Provisional results Routegadget

Sorry, we did have an issue with faulty syncing of one of the Finish units and also Control 171, meaning some people registered negative times for that leg. Total times have been corrected meaning some people who dibbed on the left-hand Finish unit, early on, had to have 2min 53 sec added to their total time.


Anagach, Grantown-on-Spey - Junior Cup Round 3: Sunday Sept 19th

Not strictly speaking our event, but organised by Alison, planned by Jon and on our area with a lot of our club members helping - so almost our event.  It went very smoothly - thanks to all the helpers from Alison.
