Orienteer in the forest surrounding the great Wallace Monument. Parking is free, cafe and toilets on-site and a chance to enjoy great views from the viewpoint.
There are three courses available, of increasing difficulty. Find the controls in the order shown:
Short Course - 1.6 km
A relatively simple course for beginners of families with small children. Find the controls in order. It will probably take about 20-40 minutes depending on how much time is spent enjoying the forest. You could detour up to the Monument viewpoint if you have spare time.
Medium Course - 2.2 km
A slightly further and more challenging course than the Short. This one gives you the opportunity to orienteer past the Monument and viewpoint. It will probably take about 30 - 45 minutes depending on your pace, navigational skills and time spent enjoying the views.
Long Course - 3.2 km
The longest and most challenging of all three courses. This one also has the opportunity to pass by the Monument and viewpoint. It will probably take 45 - 60 minutes to do depending on your pace and navigational skills. If in doubt, try a shorter course first.
