Day 5: Craig a’Barns

Craig a'Barns scenic view

Fri 2nd Aug

Today is a World Ranking Event.

The birthplace of Scottish orienteering, and widely regarded as one of the best orienteering areas in the country. Craig a'Barns was used for the Scottish Championships in 1962 and was the first specially mapped area for orienteering in Scotland. The area has played host to various events, including the Jan Kjellstrom 1990 and more recently JK2012.

Due to ongoing works (dualling of the A9) and safety considerations, competitors should access the area from the north (recommended route via Aberfeldy and the A827 to Ballinluig before heading south on the A9 towards Dunkeld).
