Courses close 20:00/20:30 TBC
Don’t forget a spare battery/torch.

Balnagowan. Deceptively difficult in places with subtle contour detail. Sporadic windblow in places but courses avoid the worst of this. Long course will visit the northern hill. Medium will loop round the south eastern part and will use one control twice so read the map carefully.
Parking is in the same place as Coull event. On the track 1km North of the junction in Aboyne with the B9094 Tarland Road. It can be muddy. Please park carefully and avoid getting stuck or blocking anyone in. There is plenty space on the side of the track further down if the main area at the top is full.
Starts between 6-7pm please. Courses close at 8:30. Results should be up in record time.
Results are now posted on the Gramp website here.
