Every Tuesday Evening
Tuesday=O, so we go out and do some orienteering. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically. Over the winter we run in the dark, with headtorches, which heightens the excitement and often means we hear owls, stags and other wildlife. Meet at 6:30 prompt.
Every Friday Lunchtime
Hill Run, meet at 12:30 at Glenmore Lodge; details vary depending on who turns up, and it's training, not a race!
A fun orienteering event with surprise twists and turns!
Nearest town: Kincraig
New map!! Surveyed by DOLM in 2014. Based on PG plot from Stirling Surveys.

We now have jackets as well as O-tops. There are some sample sizes available for members to try on for size before an order is placed. Lynne & Paul are taking them to events, so just ask them if you are interested.

BASOC was formed in June 2000 to promote the sport of orienteering in the Badenoch & Strathspey area. The club’s area was enlarged in 2003 when we merged with LOCHOC, the Lochaber club, and we now have members in various far-flung parts of the northwest of Scotland.
Between the National Orienteering Centre and BASOC, we have some of the best terrain in the UK. Our priority is small, local events and activities to encourage friendly participation and to help everyone learn and enjoy the sport at their own level.
New members are always welcome at any age and at any level.
BASOC has also worked with the local community in various ways. We have produced orienteering maps of every primary and secondary school in our area.
Our orienteering maps include some for the villages of Kincraig, Kingussie, Nethy Bridge and Grantown-on-Spey.
