Welcome to Nairn’s East Beach. We offer you a pleasant day orienteering near Inverness with a range of courses to suit all ages and abilities including beginners.

Terrain or Planners Comments: Generally level terrain so all courses have negligible climb, with a few ups and downs.  Terrain is varied, with forest, some grassland and sand dunes. There is a good path network.

Nairn East Beach is a particularly good venue for families and beginners as the terrain is not too strenuous or technical. Why not make a day of it and combine orienteering with a picnic or games on the beach!

Map:  Pre-marked and printed on waterproof paper, scale 1:7500 with 2.5m contour intervals.

Directions: From Nairn A96 east of River Nairn crossing, turn north down Maggot Road (signed for Lochloy Holiday Park). Follow the road to the T-junction at Lochloy Holiday Park and turn right and through the Holiday Park for 700m to public carpark at road end.

Please drive carefully through the caravan park as there are often children playing.

Parking:  Free parking at public car park beyond Lochloy campsite - grid reference NH 896 574. Even with a large turnout there should be adequate parking. However, if required additional parking is available at the Maggot Car Park just before the T-Junction – you will then need to walk through the caravan park to the event.
