Simply Paul: A little late with this one - sorry. Busy busy!
I think everyone who attended has logged (apart from me. Pop it on your watch list for photos when I get my act together) and since it's overdue archiving... I'd a wonderful time here - thank you for joining me at this wild and windy spot - for a while many of you were the most southerly person in Scotland [:)]
Cheers again for coming! Hope to see you at another of my 'off the beaten track' events. I intend to be back in Scotland in 2017 and have my eye on the holy grail again (St Kilda, where I held a meet in 2007)...

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Where: Carrick-kee, Mull of Galloway.

When: 2pm to 3pm, Tuesday July 21st 2015

Why: Because I like 'extreme' cache events!

Who: Cachers from far and wide, but an event of special interest to cachers who enjoy their 'extreme' caching (geographical) such as myself. Due to the location, probably not best suited to kids though.

In the event of bad weather, we'll gather at the top of the slope above the event location. Where it's safer.
