The National Orienteering Centre is located at Glenmore Lodge


Orienteering is an adventure sport requiring accurate navigation and fast running, and is a great way of learning and improving navigation skills. People of all ages enjoy orienteering in a variety of environments; around Glenmore we have wonderful forests where you can do everything – learn the basics and explore the area, or practise the most advanced skills.

We also provide a range of exciting and enjoyable courses for people wishing to teach or coach orienteering at a variety of levels. All of the courses are highly practical and give participants lots of ideas and a useful set of resources for use in their own sessions.

Examples of courses we run:
