Barr Wood, 8 November
Barr Wood is near Stirling, and was very autumnal, with frost on the ground and wonderful colours in the beech foliage. It’s a compact area with some complex terrain, and the longer courses looped around to make the most of it. There was a lot of dead bracken in the open areas, and marshes in the hollows; despite this, most enjoyed their courses, and the lower areas in the beech woods were delightful.
Top ten places for ESOC members were as follows:
White – Andie Caldwell, Kerry Wood, Peter Fawthrop, Rachel Brown, Ben Brown
