Ferryden Primary pupils went on a high-tech treasure hunt recently, geocaching in the grounds of Dunninald Castle.

The activity, involving children in primaries four, five and six, was organised as part of the school’s Health Week. The sport involves looking for caches, typically waterproof containers containing log books, using global positioning technology with details taken off various websites.

Once found, the geocacher will sign the log book. The activity has grown in popularity over the last 10 years and there are now thought to be more than 1.7 million geocaches and more than five million participants worldwide.
