Climbing Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh

23 Dec

Holyrood Park, Edinburgh
13 December 2014

A view of Edinburgh towards the Sea with the Sunrise reflecting off Edinburgh. This was my first trip to Edinburgh, Scotland and I was there for the day having travelled overnight by coach.

I could not identify the landmarks when I climbed the hill but now I recognise Edinburgh Castle (towards the left of the image) and The Hub (the pointy Steep) with the sea towards Leigh. I hope to show a picture of Edinburgh Castle and another one of The Hub in this series.

I think I picked the wrong trail; I could not get to the top of the summit because there was a patch of ice on my trail which looked slippery and treacherous so I turned back (this was early morning as the sun was rising). I will try posting one or two more views before I turned back.

    I was a long bus ride but this image made it all worth while.
