Scottish Schools' Orienteering Festival
2019 - Friday 7th June

Hopetoun House, South Queensferry

The Festival is aimed at pupils who have been introduced to orienteering through their school and the courses are set at a level that will allow success for all pupils who have grasped the basic skills. Courses are set for Primary 5 and upwards.

We are delighted to confirm the details for the Scottish Schools' Orienteering Festival in 2019.

The Festival will make a very welcome return to Hopetoun House, South Queensferry on Friday 7 June with start times being offered from 1015-1215 pm.

This area was last used for the Festival in 2013 when we enjoyed both excellent weather and competition. We are also delighted to have the same planner - Katy Lessells and new organiser Anne Thom, both from ESOC. Hopetoun proved to be a very user friendly area overlooking the Forth estuary and bridges when it was last used.

Hopetoun has a tearoom and plenty of space for picnics. Further information and entry details will be posted on the SSOA website in April. In the meantime any urgent enquiries should be made to
