The Great Outdoors:- Orienteering

One of the great advantages that comes with living in the North of Scotland is the access to the vast tracts of countryside that are on your doorstep. Both the Caledonian and Grampian areas are renowned for their countryside and forests.  Orienteering is a sport that has massively increased in popularity over  recent years. Among the orienteering fraternity the forests of Moray are well known for their quality. So much so that this year they play host to the Scottish 6-Days event and in 2 years time it is the World Orienteering Championships 2015. This will be only the third time that the world championships have been held in the UK.  To get a feel for some of the areas around Inverness and Moray, have a look at the trailer video for the 2013 Scottish 6 Day below.
