This is a replacement cache for the original STQ Fife which was hidden near Cupar. Please note that if you have already visited the original to collect the N and W numbers, then there is no need to visit this one as the numbers are the same. Of course if you already have the numbers but are looking to change a green box into a smiley then you are most welcome to revisit.
East Lomond (otherwise known as Falkland Hill) is 448m high and is surely the most recognisable hill in Fife with its distinct steep sided peak. The hill is volcanic in origin but has been widely used by man from an early age. The remains of Iron Age forts can be found around the summit and in more recent times, the hill was mined for limestone, although only the ruins of this industry can be found here today.
This cache is not placed on the summit of the hill, but is on a path which skirts the peak to the south. It can be accessed either from Craigmead Car Park, which lies between East and West Lomond (this route will take you past the remains of the limekiln) or from the east at the car park next to the masts. The views as you walk from either parking are great, however it's also worth making the extra effort to go to the summit. There are caches galore around this area too.
