Craigmonie is a small but prominent hill overlooking Drumnadrochit and the craggy summit provides a stunning viewpoint over Loch Ness if you have time to stop and have a look. All participants should note that there are some large boulders and steep cliffs at the top of the hill and everyone should take great care. It has a good network of well-maintained woodlands trails and is home to a whole variety of trees, colourful birch, conifers, and a couple of ancient Wellingtonias (redwoods) which you will see at the start.

White, Yellow, Orange, Light Green and a Short Green course are available. Note that the courses are quite strenuous with more climbing than for the other school events.

Course Length Climb
White 1.2km 100m
Yellow 1.9km 95m
Orange 2.7km 175m
Light Green 3.0km 250m
Short Green 3.1km 270m
