Venue: Castle Saunderson Demesne, Co Cavan NIOS Sheet 27 GR H 417200
Castle Saunderson can be approached from Belturbet, 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 Scouting Ireland facility. 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).
There are 2 starts beside each other, along a taped route 600m from the car park. Finish will be close to Assembly/car parking.
The map was surveyed by Pat Healy in November 2012 and partially in 2014 and again in 2015. 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. Recent forest operations have created many new but unmapped extraction tracks and a lot of brashings. 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.

The Club has recently upgraded the SI firmware on all SI stations. They have been programmed as ‘beacon’ controls and therefore should support the use of ‘Air’ SI Cards. All SI cards will also work in the normal way.
