Muckle Toon Geocache

The global treasure hunt.

The Muckle Toon Geocache Cluster

Take part in the real-world global treasure hunt.

Using GPS, you will be searching the hills and valleys of the beautiful Muckle Toon,
logging your finds and drinking in the views.

What is Geocaching?

“Geocaching” is the worldwide outdoor GPS treasure hunt in which participants follow coordinates to find hidden “caches” anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook as well as other personal or sentimental items other Geocachers have chosen to share.

The rules are simple: Find the Cache, Record your find in the logbook, return the cache to its original position and head off to find some more.

If you chose to “trade” something from the cache you must remove the small item you wish to keep and replace it with another similarly small item.

Getting Started

The only necessities are a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache, and a Free Geocache.com Basic Membership

At its simplest level, geocaching requires these 8 steps:

  1. Register for a free Basic Membership on the world wide geocaching website
  2. Visit the Hide & Seek a Cache page.
  3. Enter your postal code and click “search.”
  4. Choose any geocache from the list and click on its name.
  5. Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS Device.
  6. Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache.
  7. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location.
  8. Share your geocaching stories and photos online.

**************MTAF 2020 UPDATE***************
Hey Folks

As you may be aware the Muckle Toon Adventure Festival is brought to you by a hard working team of volunteers who have taken time out of their busy lives to bring together an amazing multi-day event for all ages and abilities over the past seven years.

Despite continued huge enthusiasm for the event, due to unforeseen circumstances the committee are unable to meet the demands of this year’s event and are therefore cancelling MTAF 2020 in its current format.

We understand this is disappointing but do not fear, the committee instead will be putting their efforts into delivering the best trail half marathon and 10K in Scotland on Saturday 20th June 2020*!

We hope you will continue to support this valued and much loved community owned event in the future.
MTAF Committee

* All entrants to MTAF trail half marathon and 10K will receive an email offering full refund or automatic entry to the ongoing trail half marathon/10K on the same day at 11am. All other entrants to all events will be automatically refunded within the next 7 days..

A tough but no doubt hard thought and brave decision by you all. Good on you for making it, and for everything you've achieved in helping put Langhom *FIRMLY* on the map for lovers of the great outdoors. Best of luck with the MTAF-Lite this year, we're right behind you all the way folks (y)

Aw that's sad, mtb event was brilliant, hope it comes back next year 🤞🤞

Fab event which we’ve really enjoyed but the past. Will still try and support when we can 👍

Was looking forward to this. It's a great weekend.

Absolutely gutted for all involved everyone does such an amazing job! X

A phenomenal amount of hard work to get the festival up and running in the first place not to mention keeping that up for 7 years - well done to all x

Typical just when a get my back sorted

Can anything be done to support the committee in the future? MTAF was great for the Muckle Toon.

Pity... MTB was a good hard well organised run.

Sorry to hear this. Was a great weekend.

Shame but with good reason I’m sure.
