Scotland: King Arthur’s Seat

F1000007edin Near Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh is Holyrood park. It’s most striking feature, visible from quite a bit of the city, is a group of hills, the tallest of which is called Arthur’s Seat. This of course refers to the legendary King Arthur, although the exact connection between the king and the hill is debated. Robert Louis Stevenson called it “a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design.” We walked up to one of the lower peaks on our last day in Edinburgh (back in October). The wind was crazy, and the view of the city was breathtaking. F1000006edin
