Arthur's Seat

Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh. It is the remains of an extinct volcano that erupted 350 million years ago! Some crazy energy on this hill!!!!

Long slow approach at the start.

The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft) and provides excellent panoramic views of the city and beyond clear out to the sea!. (note clouds rolling in)

view out to the North Sea

Guides claim is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking, but towards the top it was a bit scary, no railings, strong winds and crazy weather changes.

Skies opened up as I reached the peak!

It is sometimes said that its name is derived from legends pertaining to King Arthur may have been the location of legendary Camelot.
