Further Information

FVO event in the South of Scotland Orienteering League (SoSOL)

Update 16/12/18 9.45am - We can confirm that this event is going ahead as access and the forest are frosty but should be OK. Please take care on slippery surfaces, particularly in the car park.

General information

Barrwood is a wonderful, compact area of highly diverse terrain that offers a little of every type of orienteering. A very active Scout camp, it has undergone some significant path work over the last couple of years, but the woods, open land and marshes (!) remain as delightful as ever.

We will have access to the (unheated!) Scout barn, a short walk from the car park, which will act as the event hub and from where we will be providing soup, cakes and festive fayre for sale in aid of Dougal Spenceley's World Challenge expedition to Madagascar. Come along and enjoy a fun, sociable event to round off a fine year of orienteering.
