(To allow for holidays, maps will not be sent until September.)
On behalf of Scottish Orienteering and the 6 Day Company, we would like to pass on our gratitude and admiration to everyone involved in staging Highland 2015. Under the outstanding leadership of Richard Oxlade, the team delivered an event of exceptional quality. Richard’s calm approach to dealing with the many issues that arose in the preparation for the event, and during the week itself, gave everyone confidence that we could do it. And that’s how it proved.
Highland 2015 has finished! Thank you to everyone who entered – we hope you enjoyed the experience of watching the world’s best in action, and the opportunity to compete in the same forests.
We think we broke our attendance record – over 6000 entered for the week. This inevitably put some pressure on our largely volunteer organisation and we would like to thank everyone involved for the enormous effort they made to stage the event during their holidays. We would also like to thank the WOC organising team for staging a fantastic World Championships. It made Highland 2015 a unique experience for everyone who attended.
We had a few logistical challenges. Running a major sporting event in a Highland Glen at the end of an 8km single track with no communications isn’t easy. We would like to thank the volunteers who stepped in to help at the last minute. And we would like to apologise to anyone who was delayed by traffic or had to walk further than expected. Hopefully being able to run in unique world class terrain made it worthwhile.
The Scottish 6 Days will be back in Royal Deeside from 30th July to the 5th August. We would love to see you there. Please look out for further details on the Scottish 6 Days 2017 website.

We're sure that you're looking forward to a very exciting week of orienteering at Highland 2015. We've had a record entry for the 6 Days and together with the World Championships we expect to have over 6000 competitors, volunteers, spectators and officials involved in the event so it looks like surpassing all expectations.
As you'll appreciate this is stretching our team of hard working volunteers and with over 5,000 competitors, there may be long queues to collect bibs on Day 1 at Achagour. While it will be possible to collect them then we cannot guarantee that you will make your start times, and owing to the pressure of numbers there may be very long waits to get a Punching Start.
So please, if you can, collect your bib, coaster, programme, car parking pass, programme and any other pre-ordered items from the Event Centre on Saturday 1st August. It would also help the entries team if you could have your Entry Number ready.
