It was a dry night tonight for the latest in this year's Night Terrain series, thanks for joining us at Summerhouse Knott, we hope you enjoyed the courses.

Our thanks as always to all the volunteers who helped tonight - Andy for Planning, Derek A for safety and first aid cover, Jane as Series co-ordinator and first aid cover, Christine for helping put controls out, Jerry, Rob, Paul and Liz for collecting them all in again and the SI Team of Ali, Michael and Isobel.

Lost Property: a Garmin watch was found in between the download car and the start on the road - if it's yours, please drop us a line on and we'll arrange to get it back to you.

Map / Terrain

Be aware the maps may have an old map on the back to recycle paper.

The western part of Summerhouse Knott is a small but perfectly formed area for night O. Contour and rock features abound but not to the extent that the rock is dangerous. Storm damage is next to none. The path for the yellow course has two fallen trees (tip - go to the left). Fences must not be crossed. Your red line is either bent to the gate you must use or you are given a choice of gates. There are six belted Galloway cattle at the western end of the area, They are very placid but please keep your distance. Gates must be left as you find them and I expect that to be closed in all instances.
