Hay Lodge Park is on the west side of Peebles and is the largest park in the town. Open parkland slopes down to the River Tweed, with many mature trees and a network of paths. There is a wilder, wooded part at the west end.
There are Virtual Orienteering Courses (VOCs) here. They are available as MapRun courses on a smartphone. Unlike Permanent Orienteering Courses, the control sites are virtual, i.e. there are no markers or posts on the ground. Full details of the courses available (difficulty, length, and safety advice) and how to access them can be found on the Hay Lodge Park & South Park Wood page of British Orienteering’s “Go Orienteering” web portal.
Full instructions for accessing/using the MapRun software are included on the Smartphone Orienteering & Permanent Courses page of the Scottish Orienteering website.
