Tue 1st Aug 2017 : Scottish 6 Days - Royal Deeside

Many service personnel attended the Scottish 6 Days event held in 2017 in Royal Deeside, located around the Ballater area betweeen 29 July and 05 August. There was a rest day in the middle of the week, where competitors were also able to participate in a Sprint Race and/or Trail Orienteering.

Technical and physical terrain meant challenging courses, traversing heather and moss covered rocks and requiring significant concentration.

The weather was glorious if hot, which is always better than cold and wet.
