The 2018 - 2019 night orienteering season is here!

Season 4 will feature 4 new NNC venues, with a focus on technical challenge.  The series has been simplified and will no longer feature a Short course.

If you like Littlemill in the daylight you’ll love it in the dark……..

Planner’s Comments: Littlemill is an unusual forest of conifers coupled with open land, lochans and eskers. Plenty of features and contour detail together with a good path network.  The going is mainly good though there are fallen trees quite widely and in places the forest can feel rustic.  Some unmapped extraction lanes.

Safety: A whistle and spare torch must be carried. There is good mobile coverage in the forest should you wish to take a phone with you on your run.  Emergency contact numbers printed on the map.

Winter Weather: Due to the time of year, the event is vulnerable to cancellation in case of severe weather. A weather update will be issued 24 hours prior to the event, both by email to all those who have pre-entered and on the club website. NB: waterproof/reflective jackets recommended and may be compulsory.

Map: Scale 1:10,000, 5m contour interval.

Directions and Parking: From the A9 junction at Daviot, follow the B851 Fort Augustus road SW for approximately 3 miles to Farr Hall, Inverarnie, grid ref NH690351.  Please respect local residents and drive carefully along the driveway to the Hall.  Parking is at Farr Hall.

Registration / Download: Registration, dibber hire and Download at the Hall.

Start: 750m walk from the Hall.  The route will be taped – please follow the red and white tapes.  Note that this route crosses the B851 which can be a busy road. Maps and control descriptions will be at the Start.

Timings: Registration 1730 to 1845. Starts from 1745 to 1900. Courses close 2000.

Pre-entry Information: Entry on the day will be possible but please pre-enter online at SIEntries.  This will guarantee your choice of map and make life as easy as possible for us as we try to operate a “light-touch” event.  Online pre-entry will close at midnight on Monday 14th January 2019.  Limited map availability on the day.
