After a busy bank holiday weekend Sarah and I took ourselves out to have a go a geocaching. It’s something we have wanted to try for a while and have had a few guests stay who have said how much they enjoy it.

Fortunately for us you can try Geocaching at Coed y Brennin, for £5 you can hire the GPS unit and go and search for five caches that are hidden within the woodland. It’s a bit like going on a treasure hunt where the GPS unit guides you to the correct location, once you have got within a meter or so you really have to start searching for the cache which can be hidden under a rock or tucked away in a hole covered by moss.

Within the box you will find a log book where you can record your name, leave some notes etc. You can also swap little items that are left in the box, so a good idea to bring with you a few oddities.

We really enjoyed ourselves and made us discover new parts of the forest which we hadn’t visited before, there are caches hidden all over the place so for us the next stage will be to buy a GPS unit and start planning a few more days out.
