8. The Goddess in Scotland -- box missing
Difficulty of Trail: Easy peasy
Length of Trail: Less than 1 mile

Attempted find on 5/4/2011 - plastic bag found but nothing else. Box likely missing.

After the murder of her husband, Lord Darnley, Mary Queen of Scots fled here with the Earl of Bothwell, a prime suspect in the murder. After her location was discovered, she escaped through a window dressed as a page boy.

1. Make your way to this spot and park near the church.
2. Walk down the lane and turn right just before reaching the gatehouse, and follow a small path along the top of the stream bank until you reach a wall.
3. There'll be another path leading down to the stream at 60*. At this intersection, find a large tree at 140* and look for the goddess under something marked with the name of a nearby town.

For this box, you will need:
  • An inkpad
  • Something to write with
