Peel Hill Permanent Course
You will be able to test your navigation skills and terrain running on the 1:10000 map of Peel Hill. Never strayed off the path before? Here’s your chance. You’ll be tested by some detailed vegetation features and rocky outcrops. This area is at its best in the springtime before the bracken grows too high, but the permanent courses and events will avoid these areas.
To the north of the Hill, Peel Castle has also been mapped and may be included in some events subject to the necessary permissions.
To the south of the area, Knockaloe Beg Farm has been added to the map. Please contact the Farm if you’d like to orienteer on this area.
