Haggis Hunter: Finally managed to get up here to check on this and sadly it has gone. I was thinking of just replacing it. But I went up to drop off a couple of TB's into A Champion Country and that to has gone.

I've decided to archive both caches and I shall get around to making anew cache for the hill that takes in both view points. Hopefully it will be a bit better muggle proofed?

Thanks to everyone who has visited this cache. I really do like the views from here, that is why another will be placed.

Geocache Description:


Of ancient Ratho reared with cost and pain, how few and wretched monuments remain!
Distinctions lost! No marks of state adorn! And Ratho looks like Troy a field of corn.
Bridges and boats for pleasure crown the scene, and ne'er was Ratho known so sweet and clean.

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 of the Pentlands and across Edinburgh as far as Berwick Law.
It has a sturdy hardcore path. Suitable for kids, and buggies.

You will have to bring along your own pen or pencil

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 it HERE.
