pt :: entries now open


After a years sabbatical, The Purple Thistle weekend returns to the calendar for 2008 and true PT style we are taking you to another top class area of Scotland. This time we are heading to the west coast where we have teamed up with our good friends, Lock Eck Orienteers, as we provide another weekend of Barebones orienteering.

This year we're taking to The Island of Kerrera, a completely new map, on day 1, then a big favourite with all, Creag Mhic Chailein on Day 2. In between this we're offering an urban sprint race round the town of Oban. All of this with the usual PT style of maximum enjoyment, minimum of fuss, bargin prices, top class course setting and superb all-inclusive package deals...enter now!
