Geocache Description:

This Geocache encourages you to experience landscapes of the Scottish North-East. 

For almost 10,000 years we have lived and formed communities on the land around us. But the human populace has an ever evolving and kinetic structure. People move around. In Neolithic times through the middle ages communities moved on for political reasons, for safety or to better climates where food production and cattle raising was easier. Sadly there has always been people seeking asylum or in exile, while people also move on seeking new employment, better education or new experiences. War has taken it's toll on the land around us from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century to the World Wars of the 20th.

Land and human relationships to land is where this Geocache, located at Ardlair, takes inspiration. Stone circles, pictish stones and objects left in the landscape by past generations, leave a clear human imprint. Aidan O'Rourke found intrigue in the tuning fork symbol which adorns one of the Pictish stones found around Rhynie – there is a theory that such forks may have been struck with a hammer to crack open stones through vibrations. In his research into stones and symbols, he was drawn to this place.
