Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club


Permanent Courses

Permanent Orienteering Courses are available at all times, so you can use them when it suits you, and do as much as you like.
More information about each of the seven Permanent Orienteering Courses, a thumbnail picture of the map, and details of how to obtain a map pack is on the main Permanent Orienteering Courses page of this website.

Each map pack contains:

  • a map showing all the control points
  • a description of each of the control sites
  • suggestions for combining them into courses of varying lengths and difficulty

At each control site, there is a small plate (usually on a wooden post) showing a number and a letter, and your aim is to match the letters to the numbers.
