Inverness Caley Thistle players put the balls to one side for a spot of orienteering as part of their pre-season training.
Terry Butcher's men put their map reading skills to the test in Forres, Moray, on Tuesday as part of a local sports day.
They were joined by some of the country's most promising young orienteers who have just returned from competing in Norway and were keen to put the players through their paces.
With the region hosting the World Orienteering Championships in three years, it's hoped more people will get involved in the sport.
Midfielder Ross Draper said: "It's different but it's a good laugh. All the lads come out and it's hard work, but it's something you enjoy."
