Welcome to the Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour with the chance to earn a trackable geocoin by finding 20 special caches hidden among dozens of caches in mini-trails around castles and lochs, in forests and glens, and along the Deeside Way. To be eligible for one of the gold or silver geocoins you must collect a codeword from each cache, and earn bonus points. Full details are on the GeoTour Passport, which you can download here. The Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour stretches from Drumoak in the east to Braemar in the west. An area steeped in history with spectacular scenery, threaded by the River Dee.
Craigendarroch Hill is rightly known for its oaks, which bring it SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) status. Caches on the hill have been placed with approval of the landowners, Invercauld Estate, and permission from Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). As the path winds up (and up) the hill more and more of the view is revealed until the whole panorama is there from the cairn. On the way back down you might change your mind about the name as it rapidly becomes the Hill of Rocks. Care should be taken.
