Description EN

Skir Gut can be found at the head of the O Brook, a tributary of the West Dart.  The area down the O Brook was extensively mined for tin during the 18th and 19th centuries and has left huge scars running parallel with the stream.  These scars have now grassed over and resemble long valleys often with steep sides.

The weather on Dartmoor can change suddenly and unexpectedly and ALL types of weather conditions can be experienced. Please ensure that you have the correct clothing and map & compass (and know how to use them). Please do NOT rely solely on your GPS.

I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed according to the geocaching guidelines.
