Coille Nathais, 27 February
This event was one of the first to be postponed in 2020, so it was great to get there at last! Coille Nathais is just west of Taynuilt, at the south end of Loch Etive. It’s a lovely area of deciduous woodland (birch and oak), with some open moorland and grassy fields, many marshes, and lots of contour detail throughout, which made for interesting navigation. The weather was cool, but fine and quite sunny, though underfoot conditions were very wet after recent bad weather. There was a well-stocked ScotJOS cake stall which was much appreciated, some visiting before AND after their runs.
ESOC members in the top half of the results for their course were:
Blue (31 competitors) - Keith Brown 6th
Short Blue (27) - Crawford Lindsay 9th
