Geocache Description:


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.
Take in an enormous sweep of Scottish history as experienced by the Irvine family who lived in Drum Castle for over 650 years, from the 14th century onwards.
Drum, or if you prefer its Sunday name, Drum Castle, Gardens and Estate is one of Royal Deeside’s top historic attractions, just 10 miles from Aberdeen. It is one of Scotland’s oldest tower houses and is set beside an ancient oak woodland and a walled garden that contains a fine collection of historic roses which perfume the air.
