Geocache Description:

Good forest paths throughout the area. On a hill so no boggy ground.

The site selected for this cache was once the stronghold of King Brude. This is the fort where Saint Columba prayed before the closed gates and they fell in upon themselves. Upon seeing this King Brude and his entire retinue converted to christianity.

The container is a standard 3 litre clear plastic tub with a blue lid. The original contents were:

Flag Pin
Silva Compass
Mountain Survival Whistle
Mossie Bite Relief
Key Ring
Box of Matches

Enjoy the walk through the forest and the splendid views out over the Moray Firth and Beauly Firth.
