Edinburgh University Burns Weekend 22-23/1/11


Come and see the sights!

Come and celebrate Burns night in style!


On Saturday 22 January you will have the chance to orienteer through the historic streets of Edinburgh. We are offering 3 courses, Long (around 7km), Medium (around 4.5km) and Short/Children’s (2km) all offering a technical challenge. The Edinburgh city centre map has yet agin been extended (by planner Jegor Kostylev) and so this year's event will feature urban terrain new to orienteering. Starts are tbc but will likely be around 12-3pm, allowing plenty of time to travel from all over the UK.

On Saturday evening you will have the chance to party in true Scottish style with our family Ceilidh with live band and bar.
On Sunday 23 January EUOC offer a SoSol (colour-coded event) on Arthur's Seat, formally known as Holyrood Park.
Both events are based in the city centre and reachable by foot or public transport. There is a great bus service operating in Edinburgh at £1.20 per journey, route details can be found here.
There are plenty of travel options that take you straight into the centre of the city.
