  • Whitekirk Hill is a relatively new area for orienteering and boasts a variety of rock and contour features on broadly open hillside with picturesque views over East Lothian.

    The majority of the paths are mown strips through the grass though they appear to be more permanent and there are many informal paths around the former golf course.

    Parking for the event is at the Whitekirk Hill resort and we’d encourage you to make use of the excellent cafe which is there.

    As well as the “usual” Saturday courses, we are offering a “no paths” version of the Green course which will allow you to test your navigation using just the contour detail on the map. There are plenty of catching features which should allow you to relocate and the main hardcore track round the site will be included on the map.

  • Many thanks to all those who came to take part and to the many helpers in staging the event. Particular thanks to Neil for planning the courses and his heroics with Tim in quickly fixing various timing issues.

    It was good to have courses venturing into the woods for the first time since the storm of 2021. Now that most of the fallen trees have been removed the wood is beginning to show signs of recovery.
