Glentarkie Punch Hunt – 15th March 2020

*** UPDATE 14/03/2020 ***

This event WILL go ahead.

Whilst on site, please be respectful of personal space and avoid close, physical contact and use your own hand sanitiser throughout the day.

If you do feel under the weather, or have any symptoms which could be attributed to COVID-19, we would much rather you stayed at home and self-isolated to help prevent the spread, as per the government guidelines.


Due to the numerous storms and continual rainfall in the past few weeks, we have had to change the plans as the sites we had planned for Trials are still very much water-logged, making it almost impossible to use practically.

So with a slight change of plan, and something slightly different for everyone, we will be running a Punch Hunt at the Scottish Off Road Driving Centre, at Glentarkie, near Strathmiglo.

Tayside 4×4 Response will be along, as well as the Mad on Mud Club having a Club BBQ, which Walter has kindly agreed to include YOU if you let us know you’re going by at the latest by the day before!

Glentarkie is well known throughout Scotland as one of the most exciting places to use a 4×4. The tracks are suitable for all sorts of 4×4 from the family everyday road car, to the off road prepd. For the more serious machines, there are some more serious sections within the site.

There is a mixture of purpose built obstacles, along with natural terrain to give the driver a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

The views from the off road course are absolutely stunning, from the top of Hangmans Hill we overlook the Howe of Fife and Loch Leven. The driving area is a natural wilderness so there is a wide variety of wildlife to see as well.

You will be supplied with a card, which you have the choice of attaching to either of your wing mirrors, and you will be searching for orienteering punches, which will be hidden anywhere within the site.

Cost: £40 per vehicle plus £10 per additional driver, this includes landowner and permit fees, plus BBQ.
