Edinburgh Scotland - Arthur's Seat


Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills in EdinburghScotland which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated just to the east of the city centre, about 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city and beyond, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch. At a spur of the hill, Salisbury Crags has historically been a rock climbing venue with routes of various degrees of difficulty; however due to hazards rock climbing is now restricted to the South Quarry and a free permit is required.

During our visit to Scotland we went to Arthur's Seat. I want to see the whole city so we went there. I never thought that the climbed was so hard. I thought that its just like an ordinary hill, but i was wrong this one is tall and what makes it so hard to climb was the snow that become an ice. I was so icy and slippery and so cold and so windy. It was scary, i thought of not going to the top, i thought of giving up. But in the other side that was once in a lifetime opportunity so even if the situation was like that, i still go. It takes us almost two hours to reached the peak (by the way we're not a mountain climber and we don't have exercise, so its a struggle for us lol). 

All i can say is its worth the climbed. It's worth the struggle. It was beautiful up there, you can see the entire city. Also if you happened to be there during New Year, its a beautiful spot for watching fireworks up there. Even though its a struggle in our first climd, we still go back there to see the fireworks during New Year. We did not went to the peak we only settled halfway to the peak where we can see the city. The peak was too far to climbed and its dark.




We settled in that hill during the new years eve to watch the fireworks

My camera cant zoom that much so the pictures i took was like that. That fireworks is from the Castle and its far from the Arthur's Seat. You need a better lens if you want to have a beautiful photo of the fireworks.
