Edinburgh EarthCache Weekend
06/10/2017 - 08/10/2017
Edinburgh’s remarkable story of geology and people has resulted in many EarthCaches being established in the city and the surrounding area. An EarthCache is a specific location that people can visit to learn about geology. EarthCaches are part of geocaching (an adventure game based around the use of GPS to find caches of small hidden treasures) but an EarthCache doesn’t involve a physical cache, rather it involves visiting a specific location and learning about our planet.
This weekend event, organised by the Edinburgh Geological Society, includes an introductory talk, a day to explore EarthCaches in Holyrood Park and the city centre, and a tour of EarthCache sites (including Siccar Point) in East Lothian and the Scottish Borders.
