Welcome to Culloden Woods for a friendly local event.  We offer you a pleasant day orienteering near  Inverness with a range of courses to suit all ages and abilities, including beginners.  Many thanks to the Scottish School of Forestry and Forestry and Land Scotland for use of the areas. 

 

Terrain / Planner’s Comments: Terrain is mostly coniferous forest on a north-facing slope, with a dense network of tracks, paths and rides, and a number of gullies. Off the paths it is fairly rough underfoot. Forest varies from mature and open to slow run with limited visibility. A previously felled area which was re-planted is now dense in vegetation and uncrossable but is bordered by tracks and paths.  The wood is popular with dog walkers, joggers and other members of the public. Please be careful to avoid collisions!

The main Inverness – Perth railway runs through the wood. There is one bridge over it and several tunnels under it. The railway is STRICTLY OUT OF BOUNDS and can only be crossed by the bridge or tunnels. Some of the tunnels may be wet but this should cause no difficulty. 

The forestry school area in the south east of the map has new fencing ongoing, and a section of fence is currently down.  The fence has been marked with red except for the missing section to show it is not to be crossed.  Crossing points are marked.  Do not cross the fence except at the missing section or the crossing points.
