Join us on the walk up... 09:30a.m - 5.00p.m.


You can lunch & munch on the site of Scotland's first cache ,and even swap some travelbugs.

First some background information, it’s a cache which was rated for terrain/ difficulty before the present rating system was devised , so don’t expect any correlation .

It’s a full day event in more ways than one , but you might be tempted to find it.

It’s a 65 mile drive each way from Eglinton Campsite, allow 2 hours drive each way . Also bear in mind there are no paths , its mainly off – piste , and it is a strenuous climb allow 5 Hours +.

Read the cache logs before you go and make sure you have sufficient water and appropriate footwear .

You can find further information by Googling Ben More especially "Walkhighlands info page"

There is parking for 2 ,maybe 3 cars by the roadside adjacent to the start of the path , however without knowing numbers, we’ll set up the Gazebo at the main car park ~ 0.6 mile further east .

The original log book has been restored , and the intention is to replace this in a waterproof container together with the new one .

Slainte .
