Climbing Arthur’s Seat

I have a huge travel bug right now. But I am in no position to be traveling any time soon. So why not take ‘Throw Back Thursday’ to the blog level, and post about one of my favorite trips to Edinburgh, Scotland? Below are some pictures of me and the group heading toward Arthur’s Seat, the highest point in Edinburgh. We hiked to the top of the cliff (mountain?) and were expecting a peaceful and beautiful view at the top. Scroll down below for what we actually encountered at the top.

There were gypsies, travelers, and Scots, all drinking, playing music and stumbling about. We had come across an unexpected party with an eclectic group. Made for some excellent memories!

Happy Thursday!

  1. We hiked up there some years ago on a really cold, but surprisingly sunny spring day. Half way up, I was carrying my jacket and hoodie over the arm – half way down, the sun vanished and it started to snow 😖
    Loved the view, though!
