Duthie Park POC

The Duthie Park permanent orienteering course has had a face lift, courtesy of two energetic young lads. Andrew and Matthew live close to the park and were looking for a lockdown exercise challenge. QR codes, a map and a marker pen later and they have ensured all the controls are legible once again.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in trying this course they can download a map from the Aberdeen City council website. Alternatively the map complete with course overlay and a compass can be accessed using a smart phone via the MOBO app.

  1. Well done lads.

    Still couldn’t find number 11 though. I think it’s gone walkabout…
