Map of Ruchill Park MapRuchill Park Map

Due to the building of Ben View School Campus the reduced park size has meant that a permanent course is no longer viable.

First used by STAG in 1991 as part of “The Year Of Sport”, this park provides a sound introduction to orienteering.

There is a permanent orienteering course here.
