Ettrick Marshes permanent orienteering course launched

The official launch of the Ettrick Marshes permanent orienteering course takes place at Ettrick Marshes on 28 April 2006 with the help of three local primary schools. The map and courses were developed for the Borders Forest Trust by Roxburgh Reiver, Lindsey Knox.

Leaflets are available from the Borders Forest Trust on 01835 830750, or locally at the nearby caravan sites and from dispensers at the two car parks at either end of the forest. The leaflet, which includes a quiz sheet on which to complete answers, suggests four different courses, ranging from a short flat course, to longer, more hilly, courses.

For more information, and the answers to the quiz sheet see Roxburgh Reivers’ Permanent orienteering courses page, which contains details of the new courses at Ettrick Marshes together with other permanent orienteering courses in the Scottish Borders.
