Have I called this cache 7th?

Because it’s the 7th cache I have generated or it’s the 7th & last hill within Edinburgh to get a cache?……………

………… The answer is of course both. Edinburgh just like Athens has 7 hills. (Mentioned in Athens of the North). I had noticed that 4 of them had caches on them already so I set out to put caches on the last 3. (Hence why Crag & Tail is in a busy place).
I have listed below the other 6 hills with the caches that are on them below. They are in the order that the caches where placed.

Arthur’s Seat – Path To Arthurs Seat 2 by Silver Fox, which is now archived and has been replaced with Arthur's Seat Earthcache By Haggis Hunter

Calton Hill – The Athens of the North by evilrooster

Blackford Hill – Blackford Drop by Crustyloafer

Corstorphine Hill – Corstorphines Two Red Beacons by chumpster

Craiglockhart Hills – Craggis of Gorgin by Haggis Hunter

Castle Hill – Crag & Tail by Haggis Hunter

Now as for some information about the Braid hills. I have searched for information on them and I got several thousand hits on Google. Suffice to say all that I could find out about them was that there was 2 golf course’s on them and a few hotels around them. I didn’t particularly fancy searching through all of the finds to find out if the hills had anything interesting about them. So if you know anything about them feel free to add it to your log.

The cache is a decent sized plastic container.

Travel Bugs are the property of the person who has released them. Therefore I do not count them as a swap item.
Please DO NOT take an item in exchange for any Travel Bugs that you may wish to leave in this cache.

If you are new to Geocaching or don't know the area, then have a look at my bookmark lists for Edinburgh, you may find them helpful.
