How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The Forth cache in a series leading up to the Munro, Mount Keen. From here the going gets a little tougher.
From the cache at the Queen's Well, follow the obvious landrover track to the left of Invermark house and up the small valley where the Ladder Burn comes down.
The cache is located at the first point where the track doubles back on itself.
Please be aware that in good conditions this is still a strenuous walk but in bad conditions extreme care should be taken as it can be very dangerous. Weather conditions can change in a matter of minutes and all the usual warnings apply when walking up munros. The following points should be observed (Thanks Snaik!)
You are responsible for your own safety.
Are you fit enough to complete your chosen walk in the available time?
Know where you are going on the walk and follow the route on your map.
If in a Group know how many are in your party and stay together, never split up.
Ensure you have enough food plus emergency rations
Carry a map & compass, survival bag, torch, whistle and small first aid kit. Know how to use them.
In severe winter conditions you must carry an ice axe. You are also recommended to carry crampons.
Learn how to use your equipment
Cold temperatures will reduce the life of your batteries
Please leave your route with a responsible person.
