How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

An energetic walk after some steep bendy roads.

Please note that the coordinates given above are not correct for the cache itself, but suggest a likely choice of car park location.

This is the final “bonus” cache of the “Ness” series of caches. To get the coordinates (in OS GB format) you will need to visit WildNess, PleasantNess, Woodiness, NamelessNess and HighNess. Each of these 5 caches holds two of the required coordinates for this final cache.

This is by far the most demanding of the series and you should allow 3 – 5 hours for the return trip from the suggested car parking spot. You will be climbing to over 2000 feet and should make sure you are equipped for a fairly tough path and the possibility of rapid changes in the weather.

In winter, not only will the cache probably be very difficult to locate under ice or snow, but conditions may well be arctic in quality.

I am not trying to frighten you or put you off, but better safe than sorry!

If you succeed in finding some of the caches but others elude you or have been spoiled, please email me through this site with the details of what you have managed to get and I will provide the remaining numbers if you want them.

Your strenuous climb will be rewarded with some spectacular views (depending on the weather) and the realisation that you have deserved at least one of the pints you'll probably have in the Lewiston Arms on your return to civilization.
