Event descriptionThe Scottish 6 Days has been staged every two years since 1977, and is widely regarded as one of the best multi-day orienteering events in the world. The event is very popular with overseas orienteers, typically 25% of the entry of around 3,000 runners of all ages. In addition to 6 days of forest orienteering there will be sprint orienteering and Trail O on the "rest day". Lochaber has not been used for a major event since 2001, and there are new and unexplored areas on offer in a magnificent setting.
Terrain descriptionThere is a wealth of rock and contour detail on many of the areas. Expect a mix of technical open moorland, ancient oak forests and Scots Pine plantations.
Training possibilitiesAppropriate training areas will be provided in advance of the event and for the duration.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Fort William is the adventure capital of Scotland and lies within easy reach of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. There are many lochs and beautiful stretches of coastline with golden sands but wetsuits are advised for swimming and water sports
