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.

Take a look at St Fillans Golf Course Film - PLAY FILM

Further explore St Fillans Golf Club, experience the Clubhouse catering team Nutritious & Delicious: Good value, reasonably priced, home cooking. Homemade soup, sandwiches, hot dishes, salads and cakes. Fresh coffee and friendly staff.

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, is 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.

This embargo applies to all potential WRE competitors (runners, team leaders, coaches, doctors, etc.) as well as to all others with strong links to Elite squads.  Embargoes also apply to anyone intending to compete at the Scottish 6 Days.

No orienteering of any kind can take place in these embargoed areas until after Strathearn 2019.
