INVOC invites you to a day of orienteering in Locandinty Woods with a wide range of courses to suit all abilities.

Terrain Lochandinty Wood has areas of intricate contour features and a network of narrow paths which are poorly defined in places. There is extensive dead bracken, making some parts of the forest slow going.

Map: Pre-marked and printed on waterproof paper, scale 1:7500 with 5m contour intervals.      

Directions: Travelling from the east or west on the A96, on reaching the Inverness Airport roundabout, take the turn off signed to Croy. Continue on this unclassified road for 2.5kms and the school is located on the right hand side in Croy village. Follow O signs from roundabout.

Parking: Croy Primary School and the adjacent streets. Please be mindful of permanent residents. Grid Ref: 796496 Post code: IV2 5PG

Medical Conditions: You have the option of completing a medical form at registration. It could be lifesaving if the organisers are aware of any existing medical conditions in the event of an incident. You can leave it in a sealed envelope that will only be opened if required and destroyed after the event.

Safety: Please note that the route to and from the wood involves crossing an unmarshalled public road.  It is recommended that young children are accompanied between the event and the hall

             The OOB area at the south of the map may have livestock in the fields and there is a small lochan - there is no requirement to cross any fences on any courses.
