Loch Eck Orienteers is the orienteering club for Argyll, which was a beautiful place to visit today - a clear autumnal day with the leaf colours at their very best and the tops of the hills dusted with snow. Their Autumn Series event offered a choice of 4 courses, ranging from Yellow to Blue. I ran the Blue course which was 6.4k with 17 controls.

Dumyat (with the Wallace Monument in the foreground) by day.
This was FVO's first Night Event of the winter and took place on Dumyat - a hill at the west end of the Ochil Hills. Fraser Purves planned a Long course which was 6.1k with 23 controls. A mass start with gaffling, meant there was lots of head to head racing, with runners from the 2 different gaffles coming together at 17, making for an exciting finish. Roger Goddard and Will Hensman were the first runners home, with me third, just in front of Steve Nicholson.
