Welcome to Gilmore House, Bed and Breakfast, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland

This blog is my random ramblings and photos of what is going on in the B&B, my life, but generally my little jaunts out which I hope will give you a taster of all the wonderful excursions to do in our area.

Geocaching Demonstration Workshop










If you follow my blog I first mentioned Geocaching in August 2009. Yesterday afternoon I attended a geocaching workshop at the Dunkeld Hilton Hotel organised by Perth and Kinross Council and presented by Paul McLennan from the Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust. He is involved with Big Tree Country and a large number of caches have been hidden by them and many had been hidden for the mega event last year. There are over a 1000 caches within a 35 mile radius of Dunkeld. It was a really interesting workshop and we went out into the hotel grounds to locate two that had been placed just for this workshop and it fired up my interest in Geocaching again. With so many to find in Perthshire it adds an extra dimension to a walk and Blairgowrie is perfectly based to go out Geocaching with plenty in the immediate area. There are a huge number hidden along the Cateran Trail as well and there will be a geocaching event as part of the Heather Festival in August.
