Orienteering Championships 2015

The 2015 World Orienteering Championships and Scottish 6 Days Event will be taking place at venues in Glen Strathfarrar (Monday 3rd August) and Glen Affric (Friday 7th & Saturday 8th August).

On Monday 3rd the organisers are advising those attending the WOC to approach Glen Strathfarrar from the Beauly on the A831 but those on the AKW should also anticipate heavier traffic on the Drumnadrochit-Cannich section of the A831.  Please take extra care on the public road section of the AKW between Corrimony and Cannich.

On the Friday 7th and Saturday 8th the event HQ will be at Knockfin near Tomich with additional facilities for competitors based at Cannich Village Hall.  Travellers on the AKW should again anticipate higher traffic levels on the A831 between Drumnadrochit and Cannich.  The village of Cannich will also be much busier so again please take extra care on the public road section of the AKW between Corrimony and Cannich and also in Cannich village itself on both days.

By necessity the organisers of the events keep details of the actual course close to their chests till shortly before the start.  From information provided we do not believe the events will involve any part of the AKW apart from the road section discussed above.
