Castle Saunderson can be approached from Newtownbutler, Clones or Cavan town. It is a national Scout Centre and is signposted from major roads – entrance is off the main Clones to Butlers Bridge Road – N54.
The assembly and car parking will be adjacent to this splendid new Scouting Ireland facility. Starts and Finish will be close to Assembly/car parking.
A small charge of £2 or 2 euro will be levied on all vehicles. This will cover parking and access to toilets (and possibly showers).
Terrain notes: The map was surveyed by Pat Healy in November 2012 and partially updated this year.This one-time grand demesne consists of some rough grazing parkland near the old castle and large areas of mainly Sitka Spruce plantation with mixed runnability. Some areas of older deciduous and coniferous trees are badly invaded by rhododendron. Courses have been planned to make best use of the runnable areas of woodland and route choice options around the plentiful forest roads and tracks.
