The World Orienteering Championships and Scottish 6 Days in 2015After a hugely successful Scottish 6 Days in Moray in 2013, the World Orienteering Championships were held again in this part of the country in 2015 but with even more runners! The event was tied in with the Scottish 6 Days and included locations further afield, such as Glen Affric, as well as in the Darnaway forest, right on our doorstep. Over 5,000 runners of all ages and standards took part. After some fantastic orienteering the wonderful Moray beaches, wildlife, castles, whisky, woollens, shortbread and tartan are all about to visit and enjoy. If you were here in 2013 and 2015 you will surely want to visit again - and we look forward to greeting you!
