Former UK geocaching.com reviewer Eckington was contacted by a staff member of CairnGorm Mountain Ltd about the placing of caches on their land.
They are very happy to welcome cachers to place a cache on the land they own in the Cairngorm area providing the cache owner works in liaison with them to prevent any likelihood of damage to ecologically sensitive sites, and follows the usual geocaching.com guidelines.
Should any cacher wish to place a cache in this area please make contact with the Cairngorm Ranger Service. Their Head Ranger, Nic Bullivant, will then consider the request.
He can be contacted on 01479 861703 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please indicate on any cache submission, by way of a note to the reviewer, that you have been in contact and permission has been granted. The reviewers and GAGB have a map of the boundaries of the Cairngorm Estate.
Many thanks to all at CairnGorm Ltd who have made this possible.
A map overlay (.kml) showing the area covered can be downloaded here.
The map overlays can be downloaded and opened in Google Earth which is a free download for a PC and also as apps for Apple and Android. (N.B. These maps do not form part of any legal representation of land ownership and are created simply as a guide to areas for the purposes of placing a geocache container or marking an area where these are not permitted).
