    Default Burns Bequest

    Hi,

    Came across a new hunt today called Burns Bequest. The treasure, a jewelled mouse valued at £10,000, has been buried and the whereabouts of this ‘wee sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie’ is protected by a byzantine puzzle.

    It costs £10 to subscribe to the hunt which entitles you to receive clues and letters. The final part of the letters will be published first at 12 noon on Friday 7th August.

    Hunt site is here Burns Bequest

    and more details can be found here To celebrate Homecoming year, the founder of Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival is launching a £10,000 treasure hunt in association with The Scotsman. Will you be the one to find the gold, bejewelled, sleekit beastie? - Scotsman.com Heritage & Culture (which is how I came to hear of the hunt).

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    I visited this site today, just to see what, if any progress had be made on the hunt and discovered that all four parts of the puzzle have been published and it is now free to enter.

    No mention of the treasure having been found, so I'm going on a mouse hunt

    Is anyone working on this at all? Is there another forum somewhere, where this is being discussed?

    Hi YellowWatchDog,

    I've had a look at it briefly but I'm not doing it at the mo.

    Doesn't look like too many people here are doing it either, but if you try the Quest4Treasure Bulletin Board you might have better luck as they have Burns Bequest listed under their Current Hunts and it looks like there are a fair few people working on it too.

    Hope that helps.
