When you come to Aberdeenshire in 2019, you’ll be able to participate in Scotland’s ONLY Geotour and one of only two in the UK.

The Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour was been set up by Visit Royal Deeside with assistance from Scottish Enterprise and the Cairngorm National Park Authority to further enhance the experience of visiting geocachers to the area. There are 20 participating caches situated along the Deeside Way from Drumoak to Ballater, continuing up to Braemar.

To add to your enjoyment, many are part of mini-trails leading you into some of Deeside’s historic landmarks, local estates, iconic villages, forestry trails and lochside walks.

A specially commissioned trackable Geocoin is available by completing a passport – this can be done through collecting codewords from the 20 caches as well as obtaining stamps from participating businesses, so shop, eat, have fun or stay! 25 gets you a silver coin or keep going to get 40 and claim yourself a gold coin.

You can download the passport here.

Happy hunting!
