Geocache Description:


This cache is set along one of several waymarked forest walks that are accessed from the Glen Doll car park (parking fee £2 per day)

This spot just as the Scorrie Path emerges from the trees is one of our favourite views in the glen. So much so that this is the 3rd reincarnation of the cache and the 4th box we have placed here. Hope this one lasts!

Scorrie Path is a route which leads out past The Doll cottage and up into Winter Corrie on the NE slope of Driesh. Winter Corrie is named after Jock Winter, a local shepherd who defied the ban on crossing the land imposed by the owner of Glen Doll estate. This eventually resulted in the Scottish Right of Way Society becoming involved. A party from the Society led by Walter Smith set out on an expedition through the Mounth and Cairngorms to signpost rights of way. In Glen Doll they were intercepted by the gamekeepers of the landowner, Duncan Macpherson, and the subsequent lawsuit was only finally settled in the House of Lords. The final ruling in 1888 confirmed the status of Jock's Road as a right of way, but it left both the Society and Macpherson bankrupt, such was the cost of litigation.

Cache is a 350ml lock and lock box
