Roxburgh Reivers invite you to the "Rolling Hills of the Borders", (but in this case the well contoured hills at Teviothead), for the 6th and last round of the 2019 Scottish Orienteering League. The area, which has been used previously for the Harvester Relays in 2006 and the CompassSport Cup finals in 2012, consists of sheep and cattle grazed moorland with a wealth of contour, rock and marshland detail - but few paths and tracks! Part of the area is farmed by event organiser, and current M60 British Long Distance Champion, John Tullie whose family have been tenants here since 1870. As well as producing Galloway cows and Blackface sheep the farm has also been home to 4 SCOTJOS members, 2 JWOC competitors and a former British Open Champion and WOC competitor. Are you up to competing on the terrain of champions!!!!

Further event details can be found on the RR website - http://roxburghreivers.org.uk/?ai1ec_event=scottish-orienteering-league&instance_id=348

Make a weekend of it!

Why not have an Autumn break and explore this quiet corner of the Scottish Borders. Camping and parking for campervans will be available close to Teviothead village hall which has cooking and toilet facilities (although no showers) - contact organiser for details. There is also self catering accommodation available at the nearby Mosspaul Inn which is a good base for walks in the local hills - or have a go at their Wisp hill challenge! For something a bit different there are the brand new Falnash Lodges which offer spectacular views of the competition area from their covered hot tubs. Hawick, which is only 9 miles down the Teviot valley, offers a range of accommodation, eating places and visitor attractions. Just over the hill from Teviothead is the "vast and eerie" Hermitage Castle which is well worth a visit, possibly after climbing Caldcleuch Head the only "Donald" in this part of the Borders. Other local attractions include the Henry Scott Riddell monument which also overlooks the competition area, the Celtic Goldsmiths with their unique hand crafted jewellery, or for motorbike enthusiasts the Hizzy cairn.
