Geocaching

Hi-tech treasure hunts set for Peebles this month

THE first in a series of hi-tech treasure hunts will take place in Peebles later this month that will encourage visitors to get outdoors and explore the area.

The first-ever Caledonian CacheFest will take place in the town on Saturday 27 May, with associated events across the weekend. More than 150 people are expected to take part in the modern day version of a treasure hunt. Participants will follow clues with help from their smartphones to discover dozens of caches hidden in the spectacular forest areas surrounding Peebles.

VisitScotland hope the family-friendly event in the heart of the Tweed Valley will bring visitors to the area to enjoy the very best of what the region has to offer.

Event organiser, Chris Meikle from Caledonian CacheFest, said: “Geocaching is a wonderful outdoor hobby using GPS devices to find hidden caches. There are three events planned in Peebles over the Bank Holiday weekend and we have worked closely with the Forestry Commission to take advantage of the stunning scenery and forest trails around Peebles. We hope to attract a few hundred geocachers to the area and hopefully introduce loads more locals to this great hobby.

“Our aim is to host similar events every two years and show that geocaching is not only a fun pastime for everyone, but it is also educational, available to everyone and good for your health.”
