Terrain description

This map covers the Ladywood housing estate and Beeslack School and Woods. The terrain is a mixture: steep wooded valleys of the Loon Burn and North Esk River, a modern housing estate, a few rough open areas, school grounds and playing fields. The housing estate has many narrow alleyways, courtyards and grassed areas amongst similar-looking buildings, and is excellent sprint terrain. 

This map was produced by Dave Peel (Peel Land Surveys), and won 2 awards for 2016, which were presented at the 2017 British Orienteering AGM:

  • The Silva Trophy, presented for best map produced by professional mappers
  • The Walsh Trophy, sponsored by Walsh Shoes, for the best urban or sprint map to ISSOM standards
