Parking at Maggot car park, Nairn. From Forres, travelling on the A96, turn right before the bridge over the river Nairn. From Inverness, travelling on the A96, cross the bridge over the river Nairn and take the first left. Both directions are signed for Lochloy Holiday Park. Registration will be at the car park. The Start/Finish will be approx. 100m from the parking, between the holiday park’s Bar&Restaurant and river. Download will be located next to the Bailey bridge in the car park.
Courses will cover a mixed terrain of sand dunes (short course) and sand dunes + pine forest (long course) on a 1-4.000 map scale. Symbols are as for sprint maps (ISSprOM).

Note that anyone under the age of 14 MUST be accompanied on the course by an adult unless the parent/guardian can convince the organizer of the young orienteer's proven competence at night orienteering. Adults shadowing juniors on the Night Novice course can run competitively on the Short/Long afterwards. If you shadow a junior on the Short/Long you should declare yourself non-competitive to the organiser if later running one of those courses.
Please do not attend if you or anyone in your household feel unwell or have any Covid-19 symptoms (well documented elsewhere). Also, do not attend if you or anyone in your household have been told to isolate or quarantine. People in higher risk categories should be aware that meeting a group of people does increase the possibility of them becoming infected. We also recommend that if you have a smartphone, you download the Protect Scotland app. Competitors should read and abide by British Orienteering's Code of Conduct for Participants.
As it is December, hat and gloves are recommended, as is a reflective/waterproof jacket. Please carry a spare head torch and a whistle. On a less pleasing note, as the area is popular with dog walkers, one must have regard to dog-related matter which might be underfoot. Organiser’s mobile is printed on the map should you require modest assistance. Emergency 999.
In the event of cancellation due to adverse weather notices will be posted on INVOC website and facebook page
