About STAGSummary of 2019 Achievements
In 1982, St. Andrew’s Orienteering Club (Glasgow) was formed in the East End of Glasgow with the primary purpose of making Orienteering a more accessible activity.
By producing maps & hosting events, setting up permanent facilities & facilitating schools’ involvement we continue to promote Orienteering as a
Sport For All & a Sport For Life.

Busy as ever finding new areas, both urban & terrain in which to offer Orienteering To All !!!!
Formed in 1982, we continue to provide new & innovative ideas to stimulate local and Scottish Orienteering.
Although Glasgow & Lanarkshire is the weekly hub of STAG
activity, because of our links with the former
Faskally Outdoor Centre, near Pitlochry, the Club has mapped several
areas in Perthshire. This has maintained and enhanced our Club's reputation a major contributor to Scottish & British Orienteering & gives STAG a credibility within the sport.
I once again extend a warm & friendly welcome to all to come along and participate in our wonderful sport.
