28th July - 3rd August 2019
The 22nd Scottish 6-day event is being held in Strathearn, between the 28th July and 3rd August 2019. The Strathearn area of Perthshire runs along the Highland Boundary Fault, and bridges the glens, lochs and mountains of the Highlands with the rich farmland and towns of the Lowlands to the south. This was originally one of Scotland's ancient Celtic Earldoms, home to the Earl of Strathearn, a title which expired in the middle of last century only to be recently revived when the Queen bestowed the titles of Earl and Countess of Strathearn on Prince William and Kate Middleton.
30th July - 5th August 2017
The 2017 event was held in Royal Deeside. MAROC and Interlopers were the Central Organising clubs. Jon Musgrave was the Event Coordinator.
This was the 4th time the 6-Days went to Deeside (1983, 1993, 2005) and the event used some of our best areas with a variety of terrain, superb arenas and car parking and stunning views to the hills and mountains around Deeside.
The Scottish Orienteering Association picked up the prestigious Event of the Year Award (People’s Choice) at the Drum Event Awards in Glasgow for the staging of Highland 2015 – World Orienteering Championships and the Scottish 6 Days. Partners included EventScotland, British Orienteering and the Scottish Orienteering 6-Day Event Co Ltd, and thanks go out to everyone involved, particularly the many helpers and volunteers, who helped make this event such a success.
Scottish Orienteering and the Scottish 6 Days (Highland 2015) have been shortlisted for the prestigious Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards 2016. As finalists in the Best Sporting Event category, we are competing for the honours and a place in the National Scottish Thistle Awards against cycling (Etape Loch Ness) and Highland Games (Gordon Castle). It is over a year since the event, but thanks go out to all those helpers and volunteers who helped make the event (including the World Orienteering Championships) so successful both in the eyes of the orienteering world but also the wider community in Scotland.
