I've had a great weekend, spending yesterday telemark skiing in fantastic weather/conditions at Glen Shee with Andy Hyslop and today orienteering at ESOC's South of Scotland Orienteering League event at Newtyle Hill. Newtyle is varied and in places very rough, but provided interesting and fun orienteering. I ran the Brown (longest) course which was 8.0k with 365m of climb and 24 controls.
