Summer Series – Back O Bennachie 3rd August

Usual 4 courses; Easy/yellow 2.00 km, medium/orange 2.4 km, short tech 2.8 km, long tech 4.2 km

 This is an area only used once before so come and explore. Interesting paths, open woodland, flowing burns. Quite a lot of woodrush but all courses except the long technical  have route choices that can take you round most of it if you don’t mind the long way sometimes.  The long tech is  quite physical with a steep ravine along the way. Choose your route carefully.  Quite a few new log stacks. Parents warn your children to STAY OFF.  There is a very short walk through the car park to the start. Be careful, especially of parking cars.

 We should be ready before 6.00pm.

  • Mystery - can you help?
    After persistent enquiries - my thanks to everyone who helped - I've located nearly all the missing SOA trophies. Two are proving elusive: the Scottish Championships W70 quaich (pictured) and the Scottish Night Championships W21 trophy (also a quaich - no photo available).
