How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Where this cache lies is near the "summit" of the Orkney mainlands highest hill; Wideford Hill. The hill summit is both accessible by road, but, a more enjoyable walk is over the moorland or along the shoreline and up, from Kirkwall. Although not too high, Orkney is fairly flat and rolling with vast expanses of sea all round. As such the views all round are very spectacular. You can see all the Northern Isles,as well as down to Ben Hope in Sutherland, on a clear day from up here.
The sky's are surreal and are continually changing. What amazing colours.
There are some pylons with radio gear on them up here,but, you don't have to go near them as you are looking for somewhere much older!
The cache is in a standard 2ltr "tupperware" box. In the box are various bits and pieces e.g. erazors, funny plant pot men(and women!),"groatie buckies" [an Orkney beachcombers treasure!], log book and pencils.
