ESOC has seven permanent orienteering courses in and around Edinburgh. For more information about each area, please see the relevant entry on the Maps page, which also includes details on how to access Virtual Orienteering Courses using the permanent posts.

These are all suitable for families or individuals to walk, jog or run.
