Event Organiser - Mairi Nicolson

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, however paths are unsuitable for pushchairs.

Terrain / Map: Generally level terrain so all courses have negligible climb, with a few ups and downs.  Terrain is predominantly pine forest on sand dunes, with some grassland and open sand dunes. The pockets of gorse are thick, don’t try and get through it. There is a good path network. There is bracken on the south edge of the forest part that has not been mapped. To give variation from previous years, particularly for the juniors, the vast majority of every course is in the forest.  This gives a longer walk to the start/finish than in previous years. There is a high fence that is crossed at marked crossing points on the green course (se course information below).

Courses : White – 1.7km  Yellow – 2.2km  Orange – 2.7km  Light Green – 3.9km  Green – 5.4km                                                                                                                   All courses have a minimal amount of height gain.

In an area like Nairn East Beach with its extensive path network there is little difference in technical difficulty between a light green and green course.  Runners who would normally run Short Green are therefore recommended to run light green.  The green course includes the crossing of a high fence at the Southern of 2 marked crossing points where it is broken, but this requires a bit of agility.  Longer route choices are available that do not cross the fence.  The light green course is therefore advisable for  runners who would prefer not to make this fence crossing.
