UK & Irish Geographical Extremes (shared, public)

See the ratings for this list. Rate This Bookmark List

There's something to be said for caching at the UK and Ireland's extreme points. They're often so far off the beaten track that it feels like you've left the UK or Ireland behind... This is my first attempt at a bookmark list, inspired by the discovery I own both the UK's (and Scotland's) most westerly caches (mainland AND island?!), and England's most westerly too -pure accident!

I've not included the UK or Ireland's lowest caches, as I can't find reliable data for them, but I have included the most north/south/east/west and highest caches in each of the four countries of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, for those who don't know) plus Ireland as they're all reasonably easy to identify- If you can spot any mistakes, please let me know!

  NI's most southerly cache, it seems (if you see any mistakes in my listing, please let me know!)  

GC1DHXW Unknown Cache Attributes
  **Past holder** 'Might be' Wales' most northern 'mainland' (not Anglesey) cache. That's the problem with puzzles I've not done!

GC3RJPA Event Cache Britain's Seventh Most Remote Event (InPinn, Skye) (06/19/2013)
  Included because it's at the Inaccessible Pinnacle on Skye - the only Munro (Scottish mountains over 3000ft) you can't simply walk to the top of. This one needs ropes!  

GC3B67K Event Cache Britain's Sixth Most Remote Event (Bryher) (06/22/2012)

GCG0P7 Traditional Cache Can you here me mother
  Formerly the UK's (Britain's, Scotland's) most northerly cache- still well worth a visit... especially as it seems to be Scotland's most easterly (or least westerly, if you prefer) cache! At least, it was for a while. It's lost this title to Skerries Flyer.

  Update - now Formerly: "Mainland England's most Westerly cache (just!)?"

  Ireland's highest cache.
