Geocache Description:

Park at the Ben Loyal Hotel and walk up to the bank, you will see the path to the Castle. The path starts off as a proper path and it is good but as you go up the hill it is more just a trail.

Castle Varrich is situated overlooking the village of Tongue and the causeway crossing the Kyle of Tongue. Take your camera! It is suggested that the castle was built as a watchtower and certainly there is another building known as the Signal House beside the causeway. There are sheer cliffs to the North and West of the “castle” so hang on to any bairns and pups.

As geocaching is fairly new up here, I thought that I would take the opportunity of seeing how Geocaching affects the local population and to that end have included a 10 question survey. Do not feel obliged to fill this in but it would be appreciated if you would. I think it would be very interesting. The results can be seen at: (visit link)

Original Contents: Car, Earrings, screws, dance taps, PC Game, Focewulf 190, pumice stone, Survey forms, Badge, Blue Ribbon.
