This week we are at Crathes Castle, parking in the normal visitor car park at the top of the drive.
Please pay and display if not an NTS member.
Usual 4 courses available:
easy (all on paths – white/yellow standard – upto 2km)
medium (partly on paths – orange standard – upto 3km)
short and long tech two as-hard-as-we-can-make-it courses of different lengths (generally with as-the-crow-flies distances between 2.5 and 4.5km)
Also long tech option with no paths to make it harder for those that know this area well
You’ll be pleased to know that bracken is nowhere near as prevalent as the last few areas we’ve visited.

The GMC will be back in 2018 staying with its traditional date slot and will be over the weekend of 10 / 11 November 18.
It will be held in the Braemar area. All the usual features will be present, including a remote overnight camp with catering and heating, kit transfer to and from the camp, and orienteering and traditional hill sections over the two days. Ali R has agreed to take on the job of Planner once more, and Dave K and Ian H are again doing the Organising and Controlling.
NEWS: We have the potential to provide Fri night accommodation (sleeping bag on the floor) in Castleton Hall if we get 10 or more takers – email firstname.lastname@example.org if this is of interest – and there will be Portaloos at the overnight camp.
