Hiking Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh

Arthur's Seat

When walking the Royal Mile you can see a large hill or cliff in the distance.  The hill top is named Arthur’s Seat.  It is made up of two hills with a valley in between.  Depending on how daring you are, or how in shape are you, there are multiple paths to choose from.  We went for the middle road through the valley, which served us well, because it was a gradual climb, that turned out to be much easier than expected.

Before you know it, you turn around and you have climbed a significant distance, with amazing views of the coast.

Climb just a bit more, at a much steeper incline.  Your heart starts beating harder, your breathing becomes more labored, the wind picks up the higher you go and it becomes colder.  But it is worth it!  Once you reach the top, the views of Edinburgh are your reward!
