Geocache Description:

You need to collect 2 codes from this cache:
One for the Cambus O' May Series bonus
One for your GeoTour Passport

Welcome to the Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour with the chance to earn a trackable geocoin by finding 20 special caches hidden among dozens of caches in mini-trails around castles and lochs, in forests and glens, and along the Deeside Way. To be eligible for one of the gold or silver geocoins you must collect a codeword from each cache, and earn bonus points. Full details are on the GeoTour Passport, which you can download here. The Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour stretches from Drumoak in the east to Braemar in the west. An area steeped in history with spectacular scenery, threaded by the River Dee.

This series of caches is based in Forestry Commission Cambus O’ May woodland and  utilises the Two Lochan Trail and the Pine Tree Trail - further details of these trails can be found at Caches 1,2,3 and 6 are located in the vicinity of the Two Lochan Trail.  All caches are in the vicinity of the Pine Tree Trail. On successfully finding all six caches, you will have the information necessary to find the bonus cache. Cambus O'May has lochans, bridges and winding trails through the Scots Pine on waymarked routes. These caches have been placed by the kind permission of the Forestry Commission and you should follow all information and warnings given on their signs in the car park. You should especially note that if you leave the paths and go into the forest during the spring and summer, to please keep your dog under very close control - either at heel or on a lead. This is to help protect capercaillie. The caches are all within 50 metres of the waymarked paths and tracks. The Queel Burn flows through this area is it tumbles down to feed one of the lochans.
