Tuesday 1 October 2019 - Arthur's Seat


 

 

 

 
Today, after a five hour drive through rain to reach Edinburgh at 3 pm, Sue and I joined throngs of tourists and locals to climb this sweet little hill. The first two pictures are self explanatory; the third is a view from the 251 metre summit, with Ben Lawers visible on the horizon on the wonderfully clear day.

We had walked up from our base for a few days, the Salisbury Hotel, to which we returned via Holyrood and the 'Royal Mile', where the bottom picture was taken, and where we snatched an 'early bird' Thai meal at the Shamoli restaurant (chicken and rice - possibly their equivalent of 'bangers and mash') before returning to watch a bit of the World Championship athletics from a sparsely attended stadium in Doha.
