A Fine Pair cache exhibits locations where there is a red phone box and a Royal Mail pillar box. One such example is here in Carlops, across the road from the Allan Ramsay Hotel. Beside it also stands a bus shelter and a gritbin.
Carlops is a small village in the Pentland Hills, in the Scottish Borders, close to the boundary with Midlothian.
The village was founded in 1784 and developed cotton weaving, coalmining and limestone mining.
The name derives from "Witches' Leap" (Scots: "Carlins Lowp") as near the south of the village there are two exposed rock faces about 20 metres in height facing each other with a similar distance between them. Folklore maintained that witches would leap from one face to the other, over the chasm, for entertainment of an evening.
You will need a pen and tweezers for this cache. It is a magnetic nano. Parking available along the village at the Carline's Loup cache (GC1QXXX). Stealth is required.
