Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2015
Lived in Edinburgh for a couple years just before I got into running (and summiting things). On a return trip to Edinburgh, finally bagged this one in 2015.

I hiked this my family right after we arrived in Edinburgh. It was a nice diversion from the city. The views from the top highlighted both Edinburgh and the ocean.

What a spectacular urban oasis! Walked from the hotel for a great all day circuit including Arthur's Seat, Calton Hill and Edinburgh Castle...never mind a lot of peaty whiskey, haggis and ale! Beautiful clear day, amazing views of the harbor and historic Edinborough.

This started out as a city hike to help out with the jet lag and to check out Edinburgh and ended up tagging Arthur's Seat. 40+ MPH winds at the summit and temps in the 50 degree range made it hard to even stand up but we enjoyed the peak with 50+ other folks.

Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2009


I spent two months living at the base of Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat on East Parkside and loved waking up to the view every morning. I made a point of summitting Arthur's Seat at least once a week while I was in Edinburgh. If you're in the city, you can't find a better view of the surrounding area.

When I visited Edinburgh as a buff university athlete, I assured my Scottish uncle that I would run up Arthur's Seat. He cheerily dropped me off along the base, and I began to run straight up the side. It took about 30 seconds for me to realise this was completely unsustainable, but I looked behind to see my uncle had, maddeningly, decided to observe my progress. As a matter of pride I had to keep running until I could get out of sight, which took several of the longest, most painful minutes of my life.

Hiked this on a University trip to Scotland! Pondered many things on the summit. Let geography and geology flow together. Now I see it as a symbolic marker of change in my life at the time.

I climbed this as a very small child many times. Maybe the first mountain I went up entirely uner my own power? I may never know.

This is a great hike that blew me away with its amazing views of the Firth of Forth. A must see when you're in Edinburgh!

Ascent timed to celebrate my 31st birthday which happened to be suitably clear to offer us a splendid view. Wife strangely opted for a very direct route down to the southwest and then began to panic on the somewhat foolish scramble down!

CortezWhat do you do before a Hearts/Hibs derby? Take a walk in the park.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2007


What a nice jaunt up a great hill in Edinburgh. The summit offers amazing 360 degree views of Edinburgh.
I did this hike prior to attending the Hearts vs. Hibs derby at Tyncastle Stadium. All & all it was a superb day - despite the fact that Hearts lost:( -. After the match, it was back home to Glasgow.
