Welcome to the first Caledonian CacheFest. We are set in the wonderful Scottish Borders town of Peebles. Peebles is a royal burgh in Tweeddale. Peebles lies at the confluence of the River Tweed and Eddleston Water (locally called "the Cuddy"). The Tweed flows west to east, and the Eddleston flows from the north, turning to flow south-west 300 yards before the confluence. The eastern side was defended in historic times by a town wall, which ran in an east facing arc, through which the road to Glentress passed at the East Gate. The road passing through this gate, the Eastgate, is one of four gates in Peebles, the others being Northgate, Bridgegate (where the Eddleston Water was crossed to the north of town), and Ludgate (the western gate of the town), now called Young Street. At the junction of Eastgate and Northgate roads, where the Eastgate becomes High Street, is an ancient market cross
Caledonian CacheFest is an event with all that, that entails: you can meet other geocachers from near and far away, participate in interesting games, talks and workshops, shop among the attending geoshops and participate in other exciting activities. In the event hall you will also find a coffee shop, registration desk and Caley merchandise.
The weekend also is the host of other quality events where you can meet other friendly geocachers, or you can tour the area, where you'll find an abundance of geocaches of all shapes and sizes!
The venue is all on the ground floor, has toilets, dining facilities and is dog friendly.
Be sure to include the number of people in your party in your "Will Attend" log
The CacheFest committee will be placing new Opencaching only caches in the area in time for the event.
