Team Clova: Sorry hadn't realised we hadn't enabled this when we last replaced the cache.

Came to check on this again after replacing a couple of times and it had gone again. It seems to disappear within days/weeks of being replaced. i think the cave is now too popular and with very few hiding places we need to rethink the cache.

Geocache Description:


This cache is not accesible at high tide.You MUST check the tide tables (see Users Web Page link at the top of the page) Do not attempt this cache within 2 1/2-3hrs of high tide - as you will either not be able to access it or you will be cut off in the cove that the cache is located. A torch may be useful too.

Cove Haven was once a refuge for smugglers. Within it lies the Masons' Cave, so called because St Thomas Lodge met in it annually on St John's Day for the admission of members. This is recorded in the Old Statistical Account of Scotland (ca. 1790) when Rev. Aitkin notes that 'The Mason Lodge of Arbroath built a gate to it, and gave it a door many years ago.'

Andrew Gordon, pictured here lived in the cave.

Above the cave are the remains of an ancient fort known as the Maiden Castle.

Make sure you look for all the carvings on the walls close to the cache. Also there is a "sink" on the left hand wall.(going in)

Letterboxing.

In the cache box you will find a Rubber Stamp and an Ink Pad These are the signature for this cache. Please take an imprint of the stamp for yourself if you wish to collect them in your own personal notebook. Then leave an imprint of your own personal stamp in the cache log book (if you have one), or simply sign as a traditional log book.

Stamp and Ink remains part of the cache but it might be an idea to carry your own Ink Pad in case the one provided should dry up.
