This global treasure-hunting game is the latest craze to hit the UK. Geocaching is a challenge in which participants use orienteering skills through GPS technology to find caches – small hidden containers which hold either clues to the next hidden cache or small treasures which can take the form of coins, puzzles, toys and other items. The week-long gathering will see a variety of geocaching days and nights out (including a Mega Adventure after Dark with night cache challenges and Mega Woofy Event for cacher and geodog teams) with thousands of participants scouring the Perthshire countryside for hidden treasures. The event is a major highlight of the Perth 800 sporting programme celebrating the 800th anniversary of the granting of the Royal Burgh Charter to Perth by King William the Lion of Scotland in 1210.
