Day 4: Culteuchar and Dron
Thu 1st August
Today is a chasing start for the Elite orienteers.
This is a large mainly open hill area with some of the best hill running in the area, enjoying extensive views out across Strathearn and the River Tay. The area is being extended to include some mixed woodland on the north-easterly slopes.
Castle Law, Forgandenny, adjacent to Culteuchar Hill, is a fine example of a hill fort and courses will enjoy views from here on their way to the more afforested area of West Dron Hill. Previous events have included the Scottish Orienteering League.
There are multiple land owners including the Dupplin Estate (Lord Forteviot), Ardargie Mains and Glenearn and thanks go to them and local farmer/shepherd Mike Blanche.
Important: A condition of access is ABSOLUTELY NO DOGS & that includes them being within cars.
