Today is a long distance event

Roseisle is one of the most cherished orienteering areas in the whole of the UK. Beautiful forested sand-dune terrain with very little undergrowth to impede your fast running.  Today’s race will also include some time on open dunes as well as some areas of denser plantation so that you can experience the best of the complex contours on offer.

Day 3 takes us to Roseisle Forest and our second long distance event of Moray 2023 with kind permission of Forestry Land Scotland.  Roseisle Forest is a planned forest consisting of mostly open pine forest with some denser areas.  Planted on coastal sand dunes which provide some complex topography with the beach running along the north west of the area.  There is a good network of forest roads and many smaller paths.

Parking and arena to be confirmed; we anticipate dogs will be allowed in both areas.
