Loch Ness

Last week, Japanese scientists placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater alli.

Esmerelda, Colorado Celt and Dread Kim of the Splendid Buccaneers helped Nessie find a safe place to hide near Uguhart Castle on Loch Ness. Nessie is waiting there for other peaceful letterboxers who seek our underwater alli.

In front of the castle find the sign which says something about a covered drying kiln. Or some kind of drying kiln. It was raining and my notes are smudged.

East of this sign about 40 paces is a huge tree. Nessie is on the other side of the tree under an enormous root. Sweet.

If you're doing the Jacobite cruise thing, this is just up the walkway from the docking area.

This clue is also posted on AtlasQuest, and has a photo of the hiding spot.

I've had a report that the box is missing. But since I'm more than a hop, skip and a jump away I've no way to check. Since there are several huge trees right in that area, all with huge roots, I'll leave the clues up until I know for sure!

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