Barr Wood - Middle distance race

The area is a contrast to the Long distance area. It is a mixture of natural woodland, planation and fast open moorland. The central section of the map is used as a Scout Camp and has numerous paths and small enclosures. Features tend to be small but clearly defined.

Devilla - Classic race

The area is a man-made plantation with numerous tracks and rides. Runnability is very variable with underfoot conditions including: heather, short grassland and following recent forestry work, brashings. Rhodedendron bushes are accurately mapped as impernetrable and these are a major feature in some sections of the area. Unusually for Scotland climb will not be a major factor on the courses.
