Permanent Orienteering Courses

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!

Dibbers courtesy of Mactaggart and Mickel

AYROC has recently taken possession of a set of 18 dibbers, electronic timing devices, which were very generously funded by the  Building Communities fund of Mactaggart and Mickel. This will allow us to offer orienteering to more people, particularly during the Covid times when our equipment needs to be disinfected or quarantined between each use. Our annual AYROC School Championships will also benefit as we frequently have to borrow dibbers from other clubs.
Thanks to Mactaggart and Mickel for this donation.
