Excellent semi-permanent controls installed in September 2020. Very good for a basic intro to orienteering, all on paths & tracks. 

Please take care near water and on road crossings. Some parts of the park are susceptible to flooding.

Users are responsible for their own safety, and for compliance with all relevant Scottish Government guidelines pertaining to Covid-19. In particular, remember 2-metre social distancing and basic hand hygiene. There is no need to touch the control markers.

2) Short Urban 3.4km
3) Score Urban 2.2km
