This is medium rectangular plastic container cache which contains a log, pencil and some small swappable items. This cache is very suitable for dropping TB’s. This cache is part of a 3 cache series ‘Purgavie Puzzles’. This cache series is located on private farm land but is located on a public right of way and has been placed here at the request of and with permission of the farm owners; The Clark Family.

Do wear sturdy footwear as path is stoney. From the public right of way you are able to walk up Brankham Hill and enjoy fine views of the Strathmore valley. Maybe you will find the historical sites dating back to the bronze age.

We have visited Purgavie for holidays every year as a family since 1991. The truth is that after staying here by chance the first time, we fell in love with the place! We have wanted to place a cache here for a couple of years. This year we are able to do so as the Farm Owners, having heard of Geocaching, want to become involved in it.

Care must be taken on all of these caches as the busy main road, the B951 runs alongside all of them. Whilst it is enjoyable for children to be involved in these caches they must be supervised at all times. PLEASE TAKE GREAT CARE! Do remember to close gate if you take a walk up Brankham Hill

 

Purgavie Farm

David Clark's grandfather came to Purgavie Farm at the foot of Glen Isla in 1904 and the family has farmed here ever since, with potatoes and malting barley now the main crops, while cattle and sheep graze on the hill.  Purgavie borders onto the Cairngorm National Park.

The farm covers 470 acres of which 206 acres are on Brankam hill. You are welcome to walk up the hill and maybe you will find the historical sites dating back to the bronze age. The farm has been established since Jacobean times when weapons were hidden in the hay stacks for the 45 rebellion.
