Summary The terrain is made up of exposed open moorland surrounding Kilworth army camp, interspersed with many networks of earth walls, gullies & depressions. The terrain ranges from sheep cropped pasture, rough open fields, gorse & tussocky moorland. There are some wet areas of bog on some of the longer courses but even after all the rain, the going is still fast with good visibility.
