Geocache Description:

G:UK Rating: G:UK cache rating

This is a puzzle cache – the co-ordinates above are not the cache co-ordinates but of a car park in the area (you might find better parking closer to the cache though). You should work out the cache co-ordinates before you set out to find the cache. The cache itself is in an easily accessible location. Happy hunting.

Having just found the last cache in Edinburgh, I thought it was time for me again to hide one. I had left multi-caches to the end of my hunt as I thought they would be long-winded and cumbersome but I was pleasantly surprised. They turned out to be very interesting, entertaining and offered a variety of different challenges. So I would like to dedicate my new cache to Edinburgh's multi-caches and hope to encourage more people to try them.

To do my cache you need to have found at least two caches from the list above and a record of their final co-ordinates. It doesn’t matter which caches, all you need is the minutes value (the degree value is constant for all of Edinburgh) of latitude and longitude for both of them. With this knowledge and the table below the minutes value for my cache can be obtained with the following method: For either latitude or longitude add the values from the two multi caches together and then subtract the value from the table where one of your chosen multi caches is the column and the other the row.

Latitude (N55° ??.???’)

Sounds complicated? It is not. Here is a made-up example: Assuming you found GCH59Y at N 55°55.555’ W 003°33.333’ and GCHBH0 at N 55°44.444’ W 003°22.222’ then you can calculate the values for my cache as

Latitude: 55.555 + 44.444 - 60.777 = 39.222 --> N 55°39.222’
Longitude: 33.333 + 22.222 – 8.593 = 46.962 --> W 003°46.962’

Once you got the co-ordinates you can go out and find the cache. It is a smallish plastic container (about 17cm*11cm*8cm) and the new location is far easier to get to and should not require any acrobatic skills. If you would also like to visit the old location, the co-ordinates are: N55°55.036' W3°12.889'. Good luck.
