Haggis Hunter: It saddens me to archive this, as it was the first nano in Edinburgh (and probably in the UK?). Suffice to say it just keeps getting found and going missing. I'll think about some way of placing another cache in the area, but that doesn't mean if someone else has an idea that they can't go ahead and place one themselves?

Thanks to everyone who has visited this. I hope you have all enjoyed it?

This one though is in a nice and busy place, right next to Murrayfield Stadium. For those people that don't like Micro's, then you are going to hate this! The container is only 25mm in lenght and 10mm in diameter.

The Murrays were a prominent family in Scottish history - Sir Andrew de Moray was a companion of William Wallace. An area of Edinburgh, connected with the family, became known as Murrayfield and it was here in 1925 that the Scottish Rugby Union Stadium was inaugurated. In the first match there, Scotland beat England 14-11.

While primarily a rugby stadium, it is also used as a venue for other events - pop concerts (from U2 to Tina Turner) and was the Edinburgh location for the Pope's open-air youth rally during his visit to Scotland in 1982. For a spell, Murrayfield was the home ground for the Scottish Claymores, the NFL Europe American-style football.

The clock seen on the right of the picture used to be inside the ground (before the days of digital stadium displays). It was moved outside a few years ago when Murrayfield was upgraded.

Down to the cache:

Due to the size of it, there is only a piece of paper in there for the log (you will need to bring your own pencil). Please only leave the date and your name in the boxes. When the paper starts to get full, I will replace it and scan the old one onto here.
Please hook it back up into it's hiding location, don't let it just hang as it can be seen by passing muggles.

The cache is fully accessible for disabled cachers.

For a real challenge, try and find it when a fixture is on .

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.
