Day 2: Edinchip
Monday 29th July
Edinchip is a new area for orienteering, adjacent to the small village of Lochearnhead at the western end of Loch Earn. The village is popular for a wide range of watersports including sailing, water-skiing, wake-boarding and canoeing.
Please note this is a Remote Finish Area. The Race Arena is co-located with parking in Lochearnhead.
The Livestream today is focused on the M/W 18L but not exclusively.
Running through the centre of Edinchip is an old railway line, now part of the long-distance walk called the Rob Roy Way and including a section with great views from the bridge above the Kendrum Burn. The area includes a Site of Special Scientific Interest, an Upland Oak Woodland as well as interesting moraine features. The area is very mixed, and along with the ancient woodland includes areas of birch, rough pasture and a commercial forestry plantation.
Thanks go to the Manager of the Edinchip Estate for his encouragement and assistance.
Edinchip is accessed along the A84 from Callander or A85 alongside Loch Earn. Care is needed on both these roads as there are many bends and significant holiday traffic.
