Today is a middle distance event

Darnaway is a beautiful area of runnable beech and open woodland, full of contour features and with an extensive path network which is ideal for today’s middle distance event.

Day 2 is a middle distance event which brings you to an area last used for Highland 2015 and the WOC Relay.  With kind permission of The Earl of Moray and Darnaway Estates we are avoiding the Capercaillie restrictions and heading to the north western portion of Darnaway Forest.

Darnaway West is an area of runnable beech and open woodland, full of contour features and with an extensive path network and clay pigeon and archery ranges (not in use on our day!)

Parking and arena are adjacent to the forest and dogs are permitted subject to usual caveats (on lead, poop uplifted etc).
