UK Mega Event 2014 - Cumbrae Day - Caches, Cakes and Cycles
On the Beach
Isle of Cumbrae
Tuesday 29th July.
11am to 3pm
It's the "Jewel in the Clyde" and is Scotland's most accessible island, reached in just 8.5 minutes from Largs on the Ayrshire coast.
You'll step back in time to a peaceful island to enjoy safe sandy beaches in Millport, the island's only town. Relax with a stroll along a prom; take in the great views; eat out in cafes, pubs and restaurants, or just unwind and let the world go by.
The island has the UK's smallest cathedral, the house with the smallest frontage, Scotland's National Water-sports Centre and over 1000 bikes for hire. There's a good variety of shops, indoor and outdoor amusements and much, much more - so, if you haven't previously discovered the charm of Cumbrae, make sure you do in 2014.
With over 30 caches, and counting, on this small island then its a must do event for Mega week.
Join us on the Beach at Millport Bay for a cake or three, and a chat of course. There will be opportunity to swap trackables and ask the Mega team about the future events (and for hints to the Cumbrae puzzle caches)
From the event you will be able to watch cachers kayak out for The Beach cache - GC3QXKB
