Geocache Description:



This cache is situated in an elevated position above Logie Kirk, on top of the Yellow Craig. It has fantastic views over the Forth Valley especially of both the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle. I would suggest parking at Logie Kirk and walking up through Yellowcraig woods. It is quite steep in parts but there are good paths. At the top be especially careful because the path runs very close to an unguarded high cliff top. If you have children they need to be closely supervised here. The cache itself is at the top of steep grassy ground. You do not need to be on rock or descend any dangerous ground. Because of the cliffs and steep walk I have graded the terrain as 3*, but it is a short easy walk. Not one to attempt at night though.
It is also possible to walk in from the carpark up the hill for Dumyat or walk up from Blairlogie
As well as stunning scenery, the area is steeped in history. The story I love is about the cliff area directly about Logie Kirk. In 1720, the Old Kirk was said to be used by ‘The Witches of Logie’ for their rituals. Behind the Old Kirk is the hill known as ‘Carly Crag’ or ‘Witches Craig’. Carly, or carlin, is the old Scots word for witch, or old woman (from the Gaelic cailleach). It was on Carly Crag that the Logie Witches were supposed to meet with the devil himself, who took the form of a black dog with burning eyes. He would cavort among the witches with a blue torch attached to his hind quarters. So if you feel a cold wind blow or strange noises, whilst you walk up through the woods.....keep your eyes peeled....woooooo

The cache is a medium lok&lok
