Amazingly close to the city Date Climbed: May 25, 2007
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.
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.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
