A varied area with extensive scattered quarry workings stretching over three main hills and one subsidiary hill. In the lower reaches, there is the Community Woodland with a network of paths, then an area with Scots pine woodland and varied open ground; then, higher, the largely open hill terrain in parts heathery and in parts providing good runnability.
Balkello lies about 5 miles north of Dundee, and the map covers the south-facing slopes of Auchterhouse, Balluderon and Eastfield hills, as well as the lower-lying Balkello Community Woodland.
This area has hosted a Scottish Orienteering League event in 2010, the British Universities Orienteering Championships in 2011, and the Scottish Score Orienteering Championships in 2013.
