Edinburgh has grown over the centuries, absorbing outlying villages one by one. Small, peaceful Dean Village is one of the few to retain a distinct character. It lies nestled under the Dean Bridge, which soars over the Water of Leith.
This cache is part of the Water of Leith Cache Trail that runs through the city of Edinburgh.
Once you’ve logged the cache, take some time to explore the area, with its tiny sandstone buildings and narrow cobbled streets. You can go on to the Dean Gallery and the Museum of Modern Art for a dose of culture, or walk along the Water of Leith to Stockbridge for a flavour of the countryside in the city.
The cache itself is a small Tupperware-type box with a clip-fastened lid. of self-sealing container. It’s about 4” long by 2” wide and fairly shallow – bring skinny loot.
Public transport information:
Dean Bridge is 15 minutes' walk from both of Edinburgh's main train stations.
The cache location is accessible by wheelchair. The cache container may be out of reach for a wheelchair user, but should be reachable by anyone of limited mobility.
