Thought it was time to hide a cache near to Huntly Castle. You can park at the river side car park or if you wish a longer walk, park in the town and walk down the tree lined avenue.
Huntly Castle lies in the green heart of the Aberdeenshire countryside. It is a noble ruin in a beautiful setting, remarkable both for the quality of its architecture and for its eventful history.
The earls of Fife built the original stronghold, the Peel of Strathbogie, around 1190, to guard the crossing-point where the rivers Bogie and Deveron meet. But it was the mighty Gordons who made the stronghold their own from the 14th century and renamed it Huntly Castle.
The surviving remains tell the story of the development of the castle in Scotland, from the motte and bailey of the 12th century, through the tower house of the later Middle Ages, to the stately stone palace of the Jacobean era (visit link) Castle
The cache started off with a first to find pin, a dice, Huntly Badge, Burns Magnet, Lego man.
