Geocache Description:

If doing this caching series in winter best to start with Cravedale & work back towards The Whaling Station. The path from Hushinish out to Cravedale is a loosely defined path is prone to being wet, mucky & quite a challenge for the less experienced hill walker. Suitable walking boots & waterproofs required. This series will also take a good 7 hours to complete, maybe more so bear in mind when planning your day.

' The Rocket Post ' has been the subject of many stories and films since the original German scientist, Gerhard Zucker, tried to send mail to Scarp in 1934.  Zucker toured Germany and then Britain from 1931 until 1934, when he reached Harris, selling a postal service.  His powder powered rockets never successfully provided flight or delivery and his 1934 demonstration was no better with an explosion and singed letters spread over the beach.

For this cache there is no need to go near the cliff edge. This cache has been placed with the kind permission of the North Harris Estate.
