Map / Terrain
Birnam Hill provides an excellent physical and navigational challenge on its beautiful wooded slopes. And if you stop to look up, there are superb views over the surrounding Perthshire countryside.
Registration and Start times
Start times from 11am.
To avoid having huge amounts of climb on the courses, the Start will be up on the hill with the Finish down at the bottom. You should therefore come prepared for a walk of approx 3km with 200m climb to the Start and a flat walk back from Finish and Download afterwards. (There will be an option get dropped off closer to the Start but you'll still need to do the climb!)
FVO have also added a second lower start so that we can now offer Yellow and White non-CompassSport courses (as well as Light Green).
All information about the event is on the FVO website and the SIEntries page.
Entries only through SIEntries. Entries close on Sunday 4th February 2024. No Entry on the Day.

BASOC Club Captain Jane will arrange the start times for the club once all the entries are in. Contact Jane if you have any questions.
