A very simple and easy cache as its our first time placing one having found 200+. Suitable for children & dogs, but not wheelchairs or pushchairs. Literally 5 mins from car park.
Duffus Castle served as a fortress-residence for over five hundred years. During that time the place underwent great changes, none more radical than the replacement of the original earth-and-timber castle by one of stone and lime. When the first castle was built about AD 1150, it was among the foremost defensible strongholds in Scotland. By the time of its abandonment in 1705, the once mighty medieval castle was little more than a decaying fragment of history, completely unsuited as a residence of nobility. http://www.duffus.com/duffuscastle13.jpg In accordance with the geocache guidelines the cache is not in the historic building itself or in a protected area, but definitely close enough to wander on and have a look round. Good views over RAF Lossiemouth and on checking the area out we were treated to a few close fly overs by the jets.
