Day 3: Dundurn & Cnoc a Mhadaidh
Tuesday 30th July
The other end of the loch from Edinchip! Dundurn & Cnoc a Mhadaidh is another new area for orienteering, with a very technical and mixed forest including oak woodland, beech and conifer plantations and virtually no paths or tracks. Less technical courses are likely to take in parts of the adjacent St Fillans Golf Course. The course is surprisingly level but is surrounded by towering and craggy hills and the imposing St Fillan’s Hill – a must for a control site.
Day 3 is a World Ranking Event.
The area is wholly within the Drummond Estates. The Drummond Castle Gardens, just a few miles south of Crieff, are in the list of the finest gardens in Europe and well worth a visit.
The A85, running east-west through nearby St Fillans, has a series of very sharp bends to the east of Dundurn so please take care.
