Training areas will be available during the period from Sunday 14th July 2013 (2 weeks before the event) to Sunday 11th August 2013 (one week after the event).
Please note that any pre-ordered maps that were not posted will be available from Moray 2013 Information Point.
Please note: The access road from the A940 is narrow but is carrying a lot of industrial traffic (wind turbine towers and blades along with cement tankers). This traffic, when travelling NW on the road is travelling fast! Take care!
The area consists of a forested glacial terrain. There is a series of parallel glacial eskers, interspersed with lochans and littered with erratics.

The 1:7,500 scale map covers an area just to the east of the picturesque village of Findhorn. The area is mostly open sand dunes with isolated trees and gorse. The courses also visit a small area of pine covered dunes.
