Ticked this one off my list on a beautiful day, a good 31st birthday. At least it was a good day until the wife decided she wanted to take a "quick" route down to the west which turned out to be rather more of a scramble than she had bargained for!
Great view: well worth the walk if you visit Edinburgh.
Arthur's Seat! I hiked this as a 17-year-old when my family took a 3-week tour of England and Scotland. I hiked it in my brand-new, white tennis shoes that could be seen hundreds of meters away. All the natives were staring at them. Edinburgh is a wonderful place.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
