New to Orienteering?
Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass.
The aim is to navigate between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, and you can run, walk or jog round the course and progress at your own pace.
AYROC has in conjunction with local country parks established two Permanent Orienteering Courses at Dean Castle Country Park and Eglinton Country Park
A Permanent Orienteering Course is a perfect way for getting active, enjoying the scenery and green spaces with your family, or as a chance to get outdoors for a competitive time trial.
Both the new Dean Castle Country Park and Eglinton Country Park courses are now available and you can download the Permanent Orienteering Courses below. Your challenge is to discover checkpoints in the form of posts or plaques, in the parks . Orienteering offers a combination of physical and mental exercise which is like no other, and you can find, navigate and complete courses at any time, and at your own pace. You just need to download a map to get you started!

AYROC started out in the late 70’s as CUNOC/ Cunninghame Orienteering Club.
As the club grew, the name was subsequently changed to Ayrshire Orienteering Club covering all North, East and South Ayrshire.
The Data Protection Act 1998 imposes rules and safeguards on those who hold and process personal data, i.e. data relating to living identifiable individuals.
You do not need to be a member of a club to participate in orienteering, but joining AYROC brings many benefits.
