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).


Within the competition area, there has been an occurrence of pythopthera ramorum, a deadly pathogen causing major problems in parts of Scotland. 


To help contain the possible spread of this pathogen we request that all competitors thoroughly wash their boots/shoes with water prior to leaving the event area at Craig a Barns. All soil and needle remains are to be cleaned from footwear and clothing. An area to do so will be provided at the end of the course.
