GPS Trail

Use a handheld GPS device to follow a trail around The Craigs campsite.


A series of interconnected tunnels and (creepy) crawling galleries to test the nerves and stamina. Try it forwards, try it backwards, try it blindfold, try it without a torch,…. try it! (and watch out for ‘the squeeze’!)
