Orienteering is a challenging outdoor sport which exercises body and mind. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map. In competitive orienteering, the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing the best route. You don't need expensive equipment, running clothes and trainers, including long-running trousers if the race is in the countryside.

A compass is particularly useful on the more difficult courses, but no GPS or the map on your phone, it's more about skill than technology. Most races offer a range of courses with varying degrees of navigational difficulty, so there’s something to suit all ages and levels of experience. 

Lagganlia extensive grounds present the perfect location for experienced groups or aspiring young orienteers. Combine this fun sport while exploring our scots pine and birch woods.  Our on-site routes use traditional maps and QR code methods. Lagganlia has been home to world championships and regularly hosts national events.

To make the most of our natural woodland surroundings, we have created a selection of onsite activities, to embrace the outdoors and enhance your holiday.

All year round you can ski and snowboard, or even do a bit of donutting on our artificial snow sports slope.

Get to grips with our traverse climbing wall or ascend above the trees, to try our high ropes course- hat trick challenge.

If you are looking for something a little less adventurous, you can test your target skills at Archery or Frisbee Golf. 

The fishermen amongst us can enjoy a days fishing on the River Feshie, then huddle around the campfire in our tipi tent. 

Our rural setting provides access to some of the best walks, orienteering and biking that Badenoch and Strathspey have to offer.
