The Scolty map covers mainly mature coniferous plantation, often quite rough and with plenty of technical detail including some very deep marshes. It also includes Scolty Hill, which is open and heathery (slow going) with good views of the surroundings. There was a remote start for the longer courses, allowing them to visit the most interesting areas. Despite a poor weather forecast, it was dry, but quite damp underfoot after overnight rain.
