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.

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!

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.

A late day break in the weather meant a quick hike up with some great afternoon light. I'm glad I checked SP to see if there were any interesting hills around Edinburgh!

Since there wasn't much vertical I handicapped myself with a belly full of deep fried haggis and even a deep fried candy bar. Oh, and the beer. What a good day!

Walked from the Royal Mile right to the top of Arthur's Seat. It's a pretty quick hike, and the views of Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth are excellent. Definitely a fun break from the busy city. Pictures (including a 360 degree summit panorama) are available from http://picasaweb.google.com/bruckie/LondonArthurSSeat.
