Errochty Forest, 6 October
Errochty Forest is part of Tay Forest Park, west of Blair Atholl, and lies on a steep north-facing hillside. The western area is natural woodland, mostly pine forest, with some intricate contours and plenty of rock features. In the east, the forest is more standard forestry plantation. There are now some large felled areas, but courses were planned to avoid these. It was a fine day with some autumn sunshine.

Short Brown (18 competitors) – Peter O’Hara 7th
