Haggis Hunter: I had a search round for this today and it does look like it's missing. Tormain is still available and that cache was made to take in both viewpoints so there is still a good reason to come here.
Thanks to those who have came and done this.

Geocache Description:


I sing of Ratho. Help me to relate it's past, it's present, and it's future state.
West from Edina-Caledonian pride, and wonder of the neighbouring world beside!
A champion country, hedg'd on every hand with stately hills, adorns the Lothian land.

Joseph Mitchell
1684-1738

This cache has been placed to coincide with the Scottish Geocacher Day Out – Ratho Park. It will be left in place after the event.

This is one of two caches on Tormain Hill near Ratho. On a clear day, you will have fabulous views as far as Ben More
It has a sturdy hardcore path. Suitable for kids, and buggies, although you will have to leave the buggy about 30 metres away from the cache, it will still be in view.

Have fun.

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.

On the 10th August 2005 I came here with Mark Stephen the presenter of the 'Out of Doors' programme on BBC Radio Scotland to do an interview on Geocaching. The programme got aired on the 13th August 2005. Wildlifewriter has recorded the programme and edited out the non-geocaching parts. The article runs for 16 minutes.

You can listen to the interview here.
