Sat 3rd Aug
Today counts towards the UK Orienteering League
Reversed Seeded Start for M & W21E only.
Grandtully (pronounced Grantly) is well known for white-water canoeing, including sections of grade 3 water. Grandtully is on the River Tay rather than Strathearn, but this area has long been seen as a possible orienteering venue by Event Coordinator Terry O’Brien of St Andrew's (Glasgow) Orienteers or STAG. In 2017 they celebrated their 35th Anniversary at Grandtully, using a very small part of the mapped area. Since then the area has been extended further to the north.
The A822 from Crieff passes through the Sma’ Glen – for those unable to venture further into the Highlands this is like some of the more mountainous areas of Scotland in miniature. Access up and down the A9 is also possible, but exploratory works for the dualling (upgrade) of the A9 are still expected to be in progress.
The area is close to the A9, allowing an easy departure at the end of what will be a great week of orienteering in some very different terrain.
