How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The cache is located near, but not in, a burial ground of unnamed Neolithic peoples who built the Cashtal yn Ard tombs. Access to the cache may only be made along the clearly marked public footpath which runs from minor road to the south of the Ards. The cache is about 200 metres along that footpath. There is no access from the north of the Ards which is all farmland. Please respect the surrounding farmland and if you are unsure, check the location on a map. .
Cashtal yn Ard
For those of you visiting Cashtal yn Ard you may of course log it as a find but only small items may be dropped off - it is a very small container which contains only a log book.
Cashtal yn Ard (The Castle of the Heights) is one of the best ancient monuments on the Isle of Man. One of three Neolithic tombs dating from around 2000 BC, it is the best preserved of them all and reputedly one of the largest of its kind in the British Isles. The monument was originally a megalithic chambered Cairn holding five chambers and extending over 130 feet long. Such sites were used as communal burial places for Neolithic chieftains and their families.
